Statement: Wheeler Applauds Rauner’s Willingness to Meet Fiscal Challenges Head-On

"Today, in Gov. Rauner’s first State of the State Address, he showed the necessary willingness take head-on the fiscal challenges facing our state. He didn’t hold back in providing an honest assessment of the desperate state of affairs and this will be very important to putting our state back on the path to prosperity.

The Governor highlighted key goals to fix our broken regulatory climate to improve our business and manufacturing sectors to create the jobs Illinois families are in desperate need of. He also noted reforming worker’s compensation and property tax relief, and how important prioritizing our education funding will be in his upcoming budget.

I’m very pleased to see that he is not afraid to take on the big issues confronting Illinois, and I look forward to his upcoming budget speech in two weeks as we strive to make these goals a reality."
