Murphy 2022 Feb Budget


SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) offered the following statement after the governor released his proposed Fiscal Year ’23 budget. 

“Working families across the state are facing grave financial struggles due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, high property taxes and the recent bout of inflation. The governor’s proposed budget outlines much needed relief for those who have long felt unnoticed.

“Tax relief policies put money back in the pockets of people who worked hard for their earnings. Today’s proposed budget is a positive first step toward helping working families, supporting the middle class and spurring economic growth. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I look forward to ongoing budget negotiations.”
