Governor’s Proposed Budget Includes $1 Billion in New Taxes

Governor Pritzker’s Proposed FY 2025 budget for Illinois includes:

  • A $2.29 billion increase from last year’s enacted budget.
  • A $775 million shortfall for FY25 based on existing revenue and the Governor’s spending plan.
  • Better healthcare benefits for non-citizens than most taxpayers receive.
  • $1 billion in new taxes and other budget gimmicks.

We have to hold the Governor and the majority party accountable for bad budget practices. We will continue to fight for a responsible, transparent budget that reflects the priorities of our citizens.
