Noland speaks to pressSPRINGFIELD – This week the Senate and the House together passed a plan for next year’s budget. While the majority of Democrats voted for the budget, State Senator Michael Noland (D-Elgin), making good on his commitment to not support a budget without adequate revenue, voted “no" on the plan.

“It’s been said, a budget is a moral document. Morals must be supported by conviction,” said Noland. “Unless we have the conviction to pass revenue necessary to support suggested spending levels, this year’s budget remains an immoral and unconstitutional document. And as such, I could not vote for it.”

Noland, a third term senator from Elgin, has been an outspoken advocate for increased revenue and a balanced budget during his tenure in the General Assembly.
