Americans For Prosperity – Illinois Responds to Gimmick-Filled Budget

Apr 9, 2022 by AFP

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Americans For Prosperity – Illinois (AFP-IL) responded today to the budget approved by the legislature for the next year. Despite lofty promises, the budget fails to provide any permanent tax relief for Illinois families, instead relying on one-time federal COVID relief funds and election year gimmicks.

AFP-IL State Director Jason Heffley released the following statement in response to the budget’s passage:

“At AFP-IL, we fight to break down barriers Illinois families face to reach their potential, and despite the rhetoric, this budget fails to remove any barriers families face in this state. Relying on one-time federal money to ‘balance’ the budget, calling temporary tax freezes tax relief, and failing to address the systemic problems the state’s bloated government has created is not a way to build a state budget. Our activists will continue to call for greater accountability from state government, starting with permanent tax relief for families in the state with the highest tax burden in America.”

AFP-IL has laid out their path to breaking down these barriers in the Prairie State Promise. You can learn more about that initiative HERE.
