4 Town Halls in 4 Weeks

Town Hall #3: Budget Reform

Crystal Lake, IL – State Representative Allen Skillicorn continues his series of “4 Town Halls in 4 Weeks” with Town Hall #3 on budget reform. Join him this Saturday, February 1 from 9am – 10am at Panera Bread, 101 S. Western Ave, Carpentersville, IL.

Illinois has not had a balanced budget in decades. Representative Skillicorn was the only legislator to introduce a truly balanced budget in 2017 that didn’t raise taxes. Skillicorn will once again be submitting his “Right Now” budget reforms.

Over 27 bills have been submitted with the major ones being:

  • Requires review and elimination of state regulations.
  • DHFS Inspector General shall report all suspected cases of provider fraud in the medical assistance program.
  • Provides that a redetermination of eligibility for medical assistance benefits shall be conducted every 3 months.
  • Requires regular data checks of the welfare rolls to ensure only qualified recipients are receiving welfare. Recipients that move to another state shall not collect.

All town hall events are free and open to the public. Some locations may have limited seating and space. In the event of limited space, individuals will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.
