SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Laura Murphy, a Des Plaines Democrat, released the following statement in response to the governor’s budget address:

Senator Murphy listens to the governor's address.“The governor failed to deliver a balanced budget his first three years in office, the detrimental effects of which Illinoisans still feel today. Now he plans to push the burden of balancing his budget onto middle- and low-income taxpayers. His budget proposal shifts existing pension costs onto local school districts, which will significantly increase property taxes for homeowners. I do not believe that increasing property taxes to solve the budget crisis is the answer. We need a realistic plan that doesn’t balance the budget on the backs of the middle class.”
