Making Progress Together

See what JB has been working on since he’s been Governor.

I’m proud of the work we’ve done to move Illinois in the right direction.

After years of mismanagement and neglect, our state is finally starting to move forward, putting government back on the side of working families. In my first legislative session, we had some historic wins. With your help, we restored funding for education, mental health, and job training. We reformed pensions so we can lower your property taxes. We began rebuilding our roads, bridges, and schools. We increased the minimum wage to a living wage, lifting hundreds of thousands of Illinoisans out of poverty. We expanded healthcare coverage and improved the quality of care for our seniors.

And I appointed the most diverse executive branch leadership in state history. We are getting Illinois moving again by creating jobs and improving services for families across the state. But here’s the best part: we are just getting started.
