State Senator Napoloen B Harris, III made the following statement after the governor's 2014 budget address today:

“While I give the governor credit for his proposal to grow Illinois and pay off old bills, I am very disappointed he didn’t address the fact that he proposes to cut funding for pre-K through 12 education by $400 million. But I support his proposal to expand early-childhood education, which will help children be more successful with their education.”
