Statement on Governor Rauner’s State of the State

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner gave his second annual State of the State today before members of the Illinois General Assembly.
Illinois State Representative Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) released the following statement:

“Today the Governor unveiled a plan to turn Illinois’ economy around and make us more competitive with other states.  If we want to properly fund education and services for our most needy citizens we have to get our economy to bounce back.  I’m also looking forward to tackling important issues this session such as property tax relief and eliminating burdensome government mandates. We’ve got a lot of work to do and I’m happy that the Governor has left the door open to work with Democrats to bring about real reforms.”
