BudgetQuote Johnson2021 1SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) released the following statement following the General Assembly’s passage of a balanced state budget for the upcoming fiscal year:

“In light of the pandemic-related challenges many Illinois businesses and residents still face, I fought hard to make sure our state budget included an increase in funding to maintain our social safety nets and expand the assistance programs that have been helping Illinoisans get by.

“Together, we’ve overcome unprecedented challenges over the past year. With this responsible, balanced budget as our foundation, Illinois and all its communities—including low-income residents, children, older adults and Illinoisans with disabilities—are on the path to a brighter future.”
