Illinois Manufacturers’ Association Responds to Governor’s Budget Address
SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA) released the following statement regarding Gov. JB Pritzker’s annual budget address:
“Illinois manufacturers remain committed to working with Governor Pritzker and lawmakers to enact policies that create jobs, invest in our workforce and drive economic growth. Unfortunately, this budget proposal is built around a massive income tax increase on Illinois employers and families who are looking for meaningful reforms, property tax relief and fiscal restraint,” said Mark Denzler, president & CEO of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association. “Illinois is an amazing state with many innate advantages, but the exodus of taxpayers will only grow worse if elected officials continue to pile higher taxes and costly regulations on job creators every single year.”
