“Governor Rauner’s State of the State address was one every Illinoisan can appreciate. His plan to turn around the state’s economy, making state government more efficient, and focusing on reforms to right Illinois’ fiscal ship are all much needed.
“His address makes it very clear, we must all work together to solve Illinois’ problems.
“We can all agree, Illinois must focus on reforming Illinois’ education system, reforming the state’s criminal justice system, passing a balanced budget, and improving the lives of all citizens.
“Restoring trust in government, moving Illinois forward, and remaining optimistic are all themes I completely agree on with the Governor. I hope we can start to make these themes a reality this year.”
- State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Peru)
