Senator Anderson reacts to passage of FY2025 state budget

Springfield, IL – State Senator Neil Anderson has released the below statement following the passage of the state’s Fiscal Year 2025 budget:

 “Under this budget, Illinois residents are treated as second-class citizens while illegal immigrants receive highly sought-after care, depriving our own residents of essential services. This budget alone contains nearly a billion dollars in tax hikes all to fund Governor Pritzker self-created illegal immigrant crisis.

“Despite being one of the highest-taxed states in the nation, it’s clear that our state doesn’t have a revenue problem, but rather the left has a serious spending problem. State spending alone, driven by this Governor and his democratic allies, has increased an egregious 32 percent since taking office—a recording setting increase. The Democrats call this a ‘responsible’ budget, but their words are misleading and their policies thrive on smooth rhetoric and public apathy.”
