Governor Quinn Statement on Fiscal Year 2015 Budget

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding the fiscal year 2015 budget:

“The General Assembly didn't get the job done on the budget.

“Over the past several years we have made so much progress to resolve our fiscal challenges, from cutting spending and overhauling our Medicaid program to enacting comprehensive pension reform.

“In March, I submitted a balanced budget plan that continued paying down the state's bills, protected education and public safety and secured Illinois’ long-term financial future.

“Instead, the General Assembly sent me an incomplete budget that does not pay down the bills but instead postpones the tough decisions.

“I will do my job. I will work to minimize the impact of cuts in vital services while continuing to cut waste and maintain our hard-won fiscal gains.

“There’s more work to do to continue moving Illinois forward.”
