Senators encouraged by priorities in governor’s State of the State address

Today, members of the Illinois Senate joined the House of Representatives to hear Governor JB Pritzker’s second State of the State address. Here are some of our senators’ reactions to what he said in his address and what they anticipate in this new legislative session.

Sen. Sara Feigenholtz (Chicago): “It’s critical that we provide our students with every opportunity possible to succeed. Last year, we made great strides toward improving our state’s schools by investing to retain qualified teachers and I plan to continue that important work in 2020. I was also glad to hear the governor commit to reducing property taxes in our state. Illinois residents have been paying absurd rates for far too long and it’s time to get serious about changing the law to protect taxpayers. I look forward to working with the governor and my colleagues in the General Assembly to find real solutions to this problem.”
