Budget deal lacks structural reforms
Jul 23, 2017 12:01 AM - I am not happy about taking a pay cut, as is our family business -- Sonny Acres Farm -- along with many others throughout Illinois. People ultimately vote with their feet. Funding outrageous public pensions and increasing the tax burden have already driven taxpayers and businesses to other states. The latest deal in Springfield fails because it lacks the structural budget reforms needed to move Illinois forward.
