Illinois has been in a downward spiral of fiscal recklessness for years. With unbalanced budgets, underfunded pensions and anti-business regulations, we have had an outmigration of businesses, too few jobs and a lack of economic growth.
The years of fiscal games have come to an end with Governor Rauner’s focus on balancing a budget and bringing back a strong Illinois economy. The tax and spend method was never going to fix the problem. Now is the time to engage in the debate of balancing the budget and make necessary tough decisions to get Illinois back on the economic growth track.
Governor Rauner has proposed the Illinois Turnaround Agenda as a solution to Illinois’ economic turmoil and the Legislative Committee will be hearing from policy leaders to better understand the short and long term implications of the current proposal.
