Restore Trust. Demand an honest, balanced budget.
I demand that lawmakers in Springfield start living within their means and begin balancing the state’s budget.
State law requires we have a balanced budget, yet the gimmicks legislators and Governors have used over the past decade have resulted in the nation’s worst budget deficit and over $5 billion in unpaid bills.
The inability to pass a balanced budget has hurt each household and community in Illinois. Instead of taxpayer dollars being invested in schools, infrastructure and job creation it is instead going towards paying interest on debt.
We, the citizens of Illinois must have an honest, balanced budget. Every year.
Elected officials: We, the undersigned, respectfully request the State of Illinois government take notice of this cause. We demand change. Illinois needs to have an honest, balanced budget right now.
