State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Morris) released the below statement following the Governor’s Budget Address:
“I appreciate Governor Pritzker recognizing the importance of nuclear in his Budget Address. As we see in Texas, having a reliable and sustainable source of power in the state’s energy portfolio is critical during extreme weather conditions, which only proves the fact that Illinois needs nuclear now more than ever.
“That being said, the Governor just presented a budget that is $1.7 billion out-of-balance and is based on $1.5 billion in nonexistent revenue. We owe it to the families and businesses of Illinois to sit down and make difficult decisions that will enable the fiscal turnout of our state and put us on a path of economic prosperity that will benefit middle class families.”
