Share the article: ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider Statement On Gov. Pritzker Unpaid Spending Promises, Budget Uncertainty

Moments ago, Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an executive order authorizing pay increases for thousands of state employees without specifying the costs to taxpayers. Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider issued the following statement in response:

“Governor Pritzker has barely been in office for 24 hours, and he’s already signed an executive order spending an undefined amount of taxpayer dollars on state employee pay increases. Yesterday, we heard promises from Pritzker that he would work with Democrats and Republicans to balance the budget. Yet today, Pritzker unilaterally made reckless spending promises without specifying the costs, creating more budget uncertainty. It’s clear – the Pritzker agenda is the same agenda that has dragged our state down for decades – borrow, tax, spend, repeat.”
