Gov. Pritzker Proposes $711-Million in Cuts

The first step in fixing a multi-billion dollar budget hole for Governor JB Pritzker is by cutting $711 million in state expenses. 


The proposals include working with AFSCME to identify $75 million in personnel cost adjustments – that might include furlough days. The plan also saves millions by reducing grants and a hiring freeze. Gov. Pritzker says these are his ideas to shore up state finances, now it’s time to hear from Republicans.



Pritzker remains hopeful that the federal government will still arrive with fiscal support for state and local budgets turned upside down by the pandemic.
