BudgetQuote Turner2021 1b

SPRINGFIELD – Following Governor JB Pritzker’s budget address, State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) offered the following statement:

“Today’s budget proposal from Governor Pritzker shows that he understands that crucial human services need to be maintained in order for a complete economic recovery once we return to normalcy. Those who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 will reap the benefits of a bolstered Illinois Department of Employment Security, mental health services, and senior assistance programs. These investments will go a long way to ensuring the correction of systemic failures which hurt so many during the COVID-19 crisis.

“There are some encouraging aspects of the governor’s proposal, and I look forward to further discussions with him and his team to improve upon it. People from all corners of the 48th district are hurting, and I intend to play a key role in delivering the relief they sorely deserve.”
