SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Laura Ellman (D-Naperville) released the following statement after the Illinois Senate passed the Fiscal Year 2021 state budget:

“There’s no doubt that these were unusual circumstances under which to pass a state budget. We came together as a governing body and passed a responsible budget.”

“What we accomplished this week is just a start. We did what was needed to begin moving forward. Make no mistake, there’s still a lot work to be done, but I believe if we continue to come together as a state, we can tackle this challenge, and when we do, we will be stronger for it.”
