Federal and State Budgets

MISSION

Our country’s budget is a moral statement that must reflect the values upon which our nation was founded. It defines our government’s responsibilities to protect and invest in all of our people. Though the federal budget has been “kicked down the road” with a continuing resolution until October, President Trump has issued a proposed budget for FY 2018. We will review the proposal and how it affects U.S. citizens. We will also keep an eye on the Illinois budget. For both the federal budget and the Illinois budget, we will work to educate our citizens and hold our legislators accountable.
