Nybo responds to approved budget plan
State Senator Chris Nybo (R-Elmhurst) releases the below statement following the State Senate overriding the Governor’s veto to a budget plan, which includes a significant tax increase without the Governor’s requested reforms.
“I could not support the package presented in the Senate today. A 32 percent permanent income tax increase and a budget that contains none of the reforms necessary to make it work is not the way to go. The people of my district are desperate for property tax relief – and get nothing from this package. We need a comprehensive solution that includes reforms that help us create jobs and a fair and equitable school funding formula. We can and should do better.”
The budget plan now moves to the House of Representatives, where they may choose to also override the veto. The House Speaker has not announced the date the chamber will meet next.
