Johnson BudgetAddress

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) released the following statement after hearing the governor’s budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2024:

“I share the governor’s commitment to strengthening Illinois’ education system from cradle to college.  Education is a fundamental right that will empower our youth starting at an early age. Not only would the proposed budget provide our students with more opportunities, it would also alleviate the burden surrounding the teacher shortage.”

“Further, homelessness is a pervasive issue in our state that has been long overlooked. I am pleased the budget proposal includes funding for services to assist people and families who need it most.”
