SPRINGFIELD – In response to the governor’s State of the State address, Assistant Majority Leader Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood) released the following statement.

“The governor’s speech today was disingenuous. His pension cost shift offsets the investment in education he says he’s making, which would put districts who cannot afford the cost shift further away from adequate funding. That does not increase the quality of education for our children.

Furthermore, the cuts in social services show that he cannot fully fund our new education formula and he needs to come up with real solutions. We cannot keep letting our most vulnerable populations take the hit for his lack of governing.”
