Highlights from today's State of the State and Budget address from Governor Pritzker (aside from seeing my Senator and sister-rep):

🌟 We are continuing to improve our fiscal house. We've eliminated short-term and mid-term debt, turning a $17B backlog into a surplus.
🌟 We've created a $2B rainy day fund, and earned 9 credit rating upgrades.
🌟 We will continue to invest in our children and families through new funding for early childhood programs and sustained K-12 funding.
🌟 We will make IL the best state in which to raise your family with the brightest and boldest students in the nation!
🌟 Here in Illinois our budget reflects our values - spending wisely and investing in communities, families, and the most vulnerable Illinoisans.
🌟 When we take care of each other we all thrive.

The country’s pioneering first Black president and first lady were shaped by Illinois, and in turn they’ve worked to give back to our country, our state, and our neighborhoods. From making healthcare access a reality for 18 million Americans, to shining a spotlight on the issues of food deserts and childhood food insecurity, the Obamas have built on the work of so many before them who had the audacity to hope.

Today we celebrate those leaders who have defended democracy, united our country, and pursued our dream of liberty and justice for all. Let’s honor that work, and reflect on ways we can all give back to our community, our state, and our country.
