Illinois has entered another new year with no state budget. A new General Assembly has been sworn in and tomorrow Governor Rauner will speak to Illinoisans in his State of the State address.
Members of the Responsible Budget Coalition (RBC) are calling on Governor Rauner and lawmakers to set aside political agendas and present complete budget proposals that invest in Illinois families and communities.

Across Illinois, our communities are hurting. Supports for working families have been cut and proven, cost-effective services for young parents, at-risk youth, and families struggling with homelessness, mental health and violence have been slashed as providers are not getting paid.
Movement towards a budget has begun, but we are still far from a resolution. Now is a critical time for our elected leaders to hear from constituents that Illinois needs a fully funded, year-long, responsible budget supported by adequate revenue.
The Ounce of Prevention Fund is a member of the RBC, a group of 200 organizations across Illinois united to preserve vital services for Illinois families and communities by fighting for fair revenue to invest in Illinois' future.
