SPRINGFIELD – State Representative David Welter, R-Morris, issued the following statement in response to final passage of a bipartisan state budget for Fiscal Year 2019 today by the Illinois General Assembly:

"This budget represents a compromise where neither side gets everything they wanted, yet where Democrats and Republicans came together to find common ground to avert another unnecessary budget crisis. I voted Yes on this budget because it is balanced, contains no new taxes and provides additional funding for K-12 education. These are the three main priorities I had with respect to the final budget. We still need to address structural reforms to improve Illinois’ long-term fiscal trajectory and set us back on a path toward private sector job growth in every region and across every major industry in our state, but this budget is a step in the right direction.”
