Caulkins Statement on Governor Pritzker’s State of the State

State Representative Dan Caulkins (R-Decatur) released the following statement after Governor Pritzker’s State of the State Address:

“Over the past year and today we heard a lot of ideas from Governor Pritzker about the need for property tax relief and ethics reform. Yet, House Democrats block any meaningful reform from seeing the light of day. The reality we face today is that politicians continue to break our trust and Illinois has some of the highest property taxes in the nation. It’s time to stop the talk and get to work by passing stronger ethics reforms and enact real property tax relief for homeowners. I hope Speaker Madigan will join us in the call to enact these reforms to help move our state forward instead of backwards.”
