Rep. Grant Concerned Over Governor’s Decision to Sign Partisan FY2024 Budget

Wheaton, IL –  In response to Governor JB Pritzker signing FY2024 Budget this week, State Representative Amy Grant released the following statement:

“This week, Governor Pritzker signed into law one of the largest spending plans in Illinois history. An extremely partisan plan with many major flaws including: pay raises for Springfield politicians, insufficient funds returned to local governments through the Local Government Distributive Fund, and most unfortunately no extension of the Invest in Kids Scholarship program.”

Sharing her thoughts on the lack of extension for the Invest in Kids Scholarship Program, Grant continued: “I hope that the nearly 50,000 disadvantaged children and families who have benefited from this program will one day forgive the politicians that decided to play politics rather than fight for better outcomes for low income students.”

Please contact the office of State Representative Amy Grant at 331-218-4182 with any questions.
