Bellock: 'We can't tax our way back to prosperity'
State Rep. Patti Bellock said Gov. Bruce Rauner's budget address before a joint session of the General Assembly earlier today provided an honest, sobering assessment of Illinois' numerous budgetary challenges.
Bellock said she, along with many lawmakers serving the citizens of Illinois, are in agreement with the governor's address.
"Those are my priorities and I believe those of a majority of policymakers in Illinois, both Republican and Democrat," Bellock said.
