Turner BudgetAddressEOS Green

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) released the following statement in response to the Senate passage of the Fiscal Year 2025 budget:

“I only voted for this budget because Central Illinois will get its fair share. Our priorities are represented throughout with strong investments that generate economic development, bring good-paying jobs to our community, rebuild our roads and prioritize our hardworking families. 

“Organizations like Mini O'Beirne Crisis Nursery, which provide 24-hour childcare services to Sangamon County parents, will have the opportunity to expand under this plan. Investing in critical programs, like crisis nurseries, has been a top priority of mine, and I am proud to bring this new funding to the 48th District.”
