Breen Reacts to FY15 Budget Plan

Today, a bipartisan plan was presented and passed in the Illinois House to rectify the $1.6 billion budget hole in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which runs through June 30, 2015. The plan ensures the continued operations of child care programs, prisons, courts, and services for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled. The measure now goes to the Illinois Senate.

Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) released the following statement concerning the recent budget proposal:

“Our current budget deficit of $1.6 billion dollars threatens the continuation of essential services across the state, including services for the most vulnerable among us. The plan passed today by the House recognizes this reality and closes the deficit, allowing Illinois government to continue to operate vital programs through June 30. While tough decisions will have to be made in the near future, this is a responsible first step toward getting our finances in order.”
