Gov. Rauner lays out ambitious goals for budget
Gov. Bruce Rauner will deliver the final budget speech of his current term Wednesday, laying out his spending priorities as he heads into his bid for another four years.
To that end, the governor has set himself a formidable set of objectives that he said will be addressed in his budget plan for the fiscal year that starts July 1. This is what Rauner said during his State of the State speech two weeks ago:
“The surest road to economic vitality and job growth is a collaborative effort to regain our financial integrity,” Rauner said. “To that end, I will submit a balanced budget proposal (in February). It will offer a path to reduced spending, and it will show the way to surpluses going forward so we can reduce taxes and start to push back against the assault on middle class bank accounts.”
