EOS Quote PetersSpringfield - State Senator Robert Peters (D-Chicago) released the following statement after the Senate vote on the Fiscal Year 2023 budget and tax relief plan:

“This budget ensures that there is equity in how Illinois spends its money and that everyone in our state, regardless of ZIP code, is given the opportunity for health, housing and public safety. We are investing in true public safety for all by investing in our communities and empowering ordinary citizens.” 

“Despite the devastating effects of the pandemic on our economy, we are providing $1.8 billion in tax relief for working families and our state is in its brightest fiscal outlook in decades.” 

“I am pleased that we are investing an additional $200 million on top of the Governor’s proposed budget to support public safety measures and strengthen investments in violence prevention programs that keep our communities safe. We’re working toward achieving real safety and justice for all, and I feel that we are marching toward a future where no one is left behind.”
