Chesney Rejects Democrats’ FY 2025 Spending Plan

SHARE NOW

On May 26th, Senate Democrats pushed through a Fiscal Year 2025 budget that includes record spending and nearly $1 billion in tax hikes. In response to the Senate’s passage of the budget, State Senator Andrew Chesney (R-Freeport), who voted against it, released the following statement:

“This reckless budget from out-of-touch Democrats aligns more with California-style policies than the values of our Midwestern neighbors. The Fiscal Year 2025 budget includes record spending and funnels billions towards migrants and illegal immigrants, liberal social programs, and abortion services. It also includes hefty pay raises to greedy politicians—all while burdening Illinois residents with nearly $1 billion in tax hikes. The people of Illinois deserve a budget that truly reflects their needs and values, not this disastrous display of fiscal mismanagement.”
