State Sen. Jil Tracy joined her fellow lawmakers in the chambers of the Illinois House of Representatives on January 25 to listen as Gov. Bruce Rauner delivered his annual “State of the State” address.
“Today, the Governor laid out his agenda for the next year. To constituents in my district, issues like education funding, transportation improvements, economic growth and job creation are extremely important, and I look forward to working on these in the coming months,” said Sen. Jil Tracy. “Still, one of our greatest and most urgent priorities is the need for a balanced, full-year budget. If my colleagues and I can come together from both sides of the aisle, I’m confident that we not only can overcome this longstanding budget impasse, but also pass crucial structural reforms to begin rebuilding our economy and aid our schools, workers, veterans and most vulnerable residents.”
