Rep. Murphy: Pritzker’s Budget Blueprint Long on Spending, Short on Job Growth

“The bottom line is that Governor Pritzker’s budget priorities announced today included a lot of spending, but virtually nothing about what needs to be our top priority for long-term success-creating new and better job opportunities for our families,” said State Representative Mike Murphy (R-Springfield). “More good jobs are the key to lifting up families that are struggling, and pumping more revenue into state and local coffers to fund schools, infrastructure and needed services. I want to work with the Governor and my colleagues across the aisle this spring to promote ways to help families with better job opportunities…not hurt them with increased taxes and fees.”
