Sen. Rose Blasts Democrats Spending Plans for Upcoming Fiscal Year

Thanks to a nearly $2-billion surplus and $8-billion from the federal government, Illinois is looking to be in good shape financially this year.


That's great news says State Senator Chapin Rose though he questions how Illinois Democrats are claiming this year's budget is still going to be over a billion dollars in the hole.



The Mahomet Republican contends not only does the State of Illinois legislature not need another penny in additional taxes for the upcoming budget but he is condemning Illinois Democrats for using the federal dollars to expand spending rather than shore up short-term debt taken on by the Pritzker administration.



Senator Rose is calling on Decatur and Champaign residents to call on their representatives to reject furthering Illinois' spending and any future tax increases doing so might incur.
