Rep. Cavaletto Responds to Governor’s ‘State of the State’ Address

State Rep. John Cavaletto (R-Salem) joined his colleagues in the House and Senate on Wednesday to listen to Governor Bruce Rauner give his third ‘State of the State’ address to a joint session of the Illinois General Assembly.

“I continue to be encouraged by the governor’s long-term goals to change the broken system in Illinois to one that encourages businesses to stay and re-locate to Illinois to create jobs,” said Rep. Cavaletto. “I agree with the governor that improving transportation is critical to our goal of growing more jobs across the state; like the I-57/70 corridor expansion in Effingham,” added Cavaletto.

One excerpt from the Governor’s speech:

“Our state’s economy could take off like a rocket ship if we could just come together on major pro-jobs changes that need legislation to take effect. Lawmakers from both parties deserve credit for working for many months to find ways to reduce regulatory costs and property tax burdens that make businesses in Illinois less competitive than our neighbors. Hopefully we can build upon these initial proposals to ensure they drive big results on job creation. And hopefully we can work together to cut the red tape even more – reducing filing fees and costly licensing barriers that prevent hard-working Illinoisans from qualifying for good, high-paying jobs.”

“I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to craft a balanced budget that respects the taxpayers of my district and this state and not spend more than we have,” concluded. Rep. Cavaletto
