SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights) released the following statement this afternoon after attending the governor’s budget address in Springfield:

“Today’s budget address acknowledges the devastating impact of the past three years of chaos in Illinois. Fewer working families are taking advantage of child care assistance to work or further their education. Fewer individuals suffering with mental illness are receiving care. And fewer Illinoisans struggling with the pains of addiction are receiving life-saving treatment.

“The governor failed today to convey the seriousness of the issues facing Illinois and the tragic effects the budget impasse is continuing to have in our communities. We must continue our bipartisan progress made over the last several months to bring increased stability and certainty to the many residents who today do not have faith that their government is working for them.”
