Statement from Mayor Emanuel on New Civic Committee Report

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“I applaud the Civic Committee for presenting an honest report about the state of Illinois finances, the challenges we all face, and the avenues to invest in our future and drive economic growth for families in every corner of the state. While there are many opinions about the best path forward for the state, the Civic Committee's thoughtful report underscores the importance of fiscal stability for economic growth, the truth that both revenue and reform are needed, and the fact that progress is possible.”
