IL Lawmakers Promote Survey And Budgeting Model
Two Illinois state senators say they want "partisan bickering" over the state's budget to be put aside.
Democrat Dan Kotowski and Republican Pam Althoff are holding a news conference today in Chicago to announce the findings of a study on what Illinois taxpayers' want.
The Center for Innovation and Public Value's survey of 1,000 Illinois residents says both citizens largely want lawmakers to spend less on education and health care and more towards growing businesses, ensuring public safety and improving infrastructure.
Both lawmakers say the study supports a budgeting process that requires more public engagement on state spending.
