Responsible Budget Coalition Lobby Day

Date: 
10/15/2009

On October 15, hundreds of members of the Responsible Budget Coalition gathered at the state capital in Springfield to rally and lobby for a responsible budget. Elected officials failed to pass a responsible budget when they had the opportunity earlier this year. Now all of the programs Illinoisans depend on - education, health care, human services, public safety, and more - are at risk of even deeper cuts in 2010 unless legislators pass the new revenue needed to fix the budget mess for good.

The Responsible Budget Coalition, allies and legislators will continue to fight to stop the cuts that hurt Illinois families. With a responsible budget, we can all do better.
