Sims BudgetAddress

“Throughout recent years – and despite the turmoil that was brought forth due to the pandemic – Illinois has put itself in the greatest financial situation it has seen in years. As a General Assembly, we have a responsibility to continue on a path of fiscal stability by passing a balanced budget that prioritizes the people, groups and agencies that need the most help.

“In the months to come, I will use my position as the Senate Appropriations Committee Chair to negotiate a budget that solves the pressing economic problems facing our low- and middle-income families through education, small business and public safety initiatives.”
