Turner BudgetAddressQuote 1

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

“Today’s budget proposal is a great first step in helping the millions of hardworking families that are still struggling to make ends meet due to financial struggles worsened by the pandemic.”

“It seems like almost every day we turn on the news, there is a new tragedy within the Department of Children and Family Services. I am pleased this proposed budget allocates millions of dollars to benefit staffing and caseload management.”

“Further, this budget prioritizes our law enforcement officers by setting forth money to help local municipalities purchase body cameras.”

“There are some encouraging aspects of the governor’s proposal, and I look forward to further discussions in the weeks to come to pass a budget that provides support for all Illinoisans. People around the 48th district are looking forward to a brighter tomorrow, and I intend to play a key role in delivering the support they rightfully deserve. ”
