Reick says survey confirms spending, budget most concerning issues
Unnecessary spending and the lack of a state budget are the two biggest concerns of lllinoisans, state Rep. Steve Reick (R-Woodstock) said in releasing the results of a survey he conducted earlier this year.
“The results of the survey fell right in line with the types of comments I hear every day from the people I represent,” Reick said in a press release. “They are fed up with the Democrat leaders’ tax-and-spend policies and want lawmakers to cut the wasteful spending and approve a balanced budget.”
Reick's "2017 Winter Survey," which was distributed to residents of District 63 via mail and available online, garnered approximately 500 responses, including 54 percent saying the budget and state deficits were the most troubling issues. Pension reform came next, with 21 percent.
Respondents overwhelmingly supported a ban on unfunded mandates for schools, at 71 percent, and a majority supported finding a solution to the state’s budget problems through both spending reductions and increased revenue, Reick said in the release.
