Average family of four set to receive $600 in direct relief

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Senate approved a FY 23 budget and tax relief plan to offer $1.83 billion in relief to working families, and State Senator Bill Cunningham, a Democrat who represents portions of Chicago and the Southwest Suburbs, released the following statement in response:

“With inflation creating more economic challenges to hardworking families nationwide, Illinois has delivered a responsible budget plan to offer relief, make smart investments and provide economic stability. 

“By putting money back in residents’ pockets, our state is making an effort to support families with inflation-related burdens, create opportunity and set money aside for a rainy day.”
