SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Michael E. Hastings (D–Tinley Park) weighed in on the Governor's budget address:

"Past reckless spending decisions have left our state in a dire financial situation, and we have to be honest about how we are going to tackle this issue. We simply cannot cut our way out of this mess. We have already laid off thousands of teachers and closed vital health service centers throughout the state. More cuts will mean more reductions in aid to seniors and resources for our children.

I’m open to ideas to ensure our schools are adequately funded, our roads are properly maintained and that we continue to provide for our seniors. I think building a casino in the Southland is an idea we should seriously consider.”
