SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) released the following statement Tuesday after the passage of the Fiscal Year 2022 budget:

“Following a year of financial turmoil for so many people, businesses, and schools, passing a comprehensive, balanced budget that helps bolster the middle class, encourages economic growth, and increases evidence-based education funding was of utmost importance.

“Despite the effects the pandemic had on the state’s bottom line, we were able to shift our focus to ensure we kept our promise to public schools to increase evidence-based funding and reduce tax burdens on local homeowners.

“The budget passed today is a win for everyone. I look forward to watching the funding from the budget help thousands of Illinoisans get back on their feet.”
