Pritzker proposes his first state budget Wednesday

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO) Governor J.B. Pritzker delivers his first combined State of the State and budget address to the General Assembly Wednesday.

Pritzker’s expected to assign some not-so-great phrase for the state of the state, then propose a budget that leaves the income tax alone for now, increases school funding a bit and plans for making money off of legalized pot.

“We need to make hard choices. There’s no doubt about it. We’ve got to make the choices that will get us to fiscal stability.”

But Republicans will say some of his hard choices will drive more business out of Illinois.
