Rep. Davidsmeyer shares thoughts on Speaker Madigan’s budget requests

“I feel a little bit better, last week and then coming into this week, there’s a little more discussion, and from my understanding, they may even have a budget as early as today. So I remain hopeful, but I’m not holding my breath until we see what actually comes out,” Davidsmeyer explains.

Davidsmeyer says that the House Democrats’ budget plan is likely to resemble the last two budgets that were passed, but he also says that the budget needs to be “real.”

“I think it definitely is a bright spot. The other two full budgets that we saw in the past two-and-a-half years were $38 and $40 billion, my understanding is that this budget will probably be closer to $37 billion. But my concern is seeing how they get to that $37 billion. If it’s just shifting dollars around and accounting schemes, it’s not going to work,” says Davidsmeyer.
