Déjà Vu: Crisis Creatin’ Rauner Plans More Devastating Cuts

Human Services, Agriculture, and Transportation Take Another Hit Under Rauner

Chicago, IL – Bruce Rauner is making another round of devastating cuts to crucial state spending on human services, agriculture, and transportation.
Rauner slashed funding for after school programming, autism services, business development and tourism grants, environmental programs, immigrant and refugee services, and para-transit. The latest round of cuts by this failed governor is all too familiar. In 2015, $26 million in funding for many of those same human services was eliminated in the aptly-named “Good Friday Massacre.”
“Bruce Rauner slashing vital programs that help Illinoisans build better lives comes as no surprise for this crisis creatin’ governor,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “Bruce Rauner has no moral compass and he is hell-bent on repeating his same destructive mistakes with Illinois families paying the price.”
