SPRINGFIELD – February 24, 2010. Officials from Governor Pat Quinn’s Administration today announced that, for the first time in Illinois’ history, the public can actively participate in the state’s budgeting process. The Governor’s Office of Management and Budget (GOMB) today launched www.budget.illinois.gov, a Web site that allows Illinois residents to provide feedback that will be used to shape the state’s fiscal year 2011 budget.
“This site allows residents to offer suggestions on how to balance the budget while seeing first-hand the serious financial challenges our state faces,” said David Vaught, Director of the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget. “The Quinn Administration is committed to openness and transparency, and this site gives everyone the opportunity to become engaged in the budget process.”
In the midst of an unprecedented fiscal crisis in Illinois, Governor Quinn recently requested lawmakers revise the state’s budgeting process to allow Illinoisans to become active participants. The Web site reflects the Quinn Administration’s commitment to educating the public about the state’s fiscal challenges, and empowers them to help determine solutions.
