Balance the Budget, Choose Revenue

Voices for Illinois Children is joining the Responsible Budget Coalition‘s #OneInAMillionIL campaign to shine a light on the human costs of our state’s ongoing budget crisis.

Illinois has gone without a real budget for 1 year and 3 months, longer than any state in the nation. As a result, Illinoisans’ access to early childhood, afterschool, and higher education is being threatened and the state’s pile of unpaid bills is expected to reach $10 billion by the end of the year.

The Governor and General Assembly have got to do better. Illinois needs a balanced budget and adequate revenue to help get our state back on track.
