With only hours left in the 2018 regular legislative session, Illinois legislators passed a balanced budget to the Governor for the first time in years. AARP Illinois issued the following statement today applauding the Illinois General Assembly for responsibly working together in a bi-partisan collaborative manner to pass a balanced budget.

“Under the Illinois Constitution, the General Assembly has one job – to pass a balanced state budget, and today they listened to those saying “Enough is Enough” and did just that,” said Ryan Gruenenfelder, Director of Advocacy and Outreach for AARP Illinois. “While much work remains to develop a comprehensive long term, multi-year solution to address Illinois’ tremendous debt, AARP Illinois is pleased the bi-partisan group of budget negotiators displayed partisan differences can be put aside to do what is right for the citizens of Illinois.”
