State Senator Patricia Van Pelt

5th Senate District

VP SOS React 21

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Patricia Van Pelt (D-Chicago) issued the following statement in response to Governor JB Pritzker’s State of the State address:

“I appreciate that this plan recognizes the realities of Illinois’ fiscal situation, avoiding tax hikes that working families can’t afford and minimizing painful cuts to programs that people rely on. Our top priority has to be a strong recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic for Illinois families and small businesses. We need to keep people healthy, and rebuild a strong economy.

“We also need to continue our plan to rid Illinois of systemic racism. Funding for the reforms my fellow members of the Legislative Black Caucus and I passed is fundamental, including boosts for criminal justice reform and health and human services. I’m also happy to see further investment in suicide prevention and services for older Illinoisans.

“I’m confident that we can make some leeway with this proposal and continue to work toward stronger reform as we recover from COVID-19.”
