Sen. Dave Koehler

SPRINGFIELD State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) released the following statement after the governor signed the Fiscal Year 2024 budget into law:

“The investments this budget makes into education, workforce development and our local economy is a testament to how far we have come to get Illinois back on track.

“Not only is the state being fiscally responsible by paying down debt and allowing businesses to plan for the future – Illinois is making an investment in the next generation by providing increased funding to our schools, community colleges, four-year universities and programs that will improve workforce development, job development and job creation.”
