On behalf of the Budgeting for Results Commission, we would like to extend an invitation to you to join a Budgeting for Results public hearing in your area!  Over the course of the summer, the Commission will be taking testimony from providers, advocates, and other stakeholders on ways to continue to enhance the state’s budgeting process.  Feedback received during these hearings will be used to inform the recommendations the Commission will make to the Governor and General Assembly this fall. Attached is the schedule for public hearings as well as a flyer for the next scheduled public hearing which will take place on Tuesday, July 16 from 6-8pm in South Holland at South Suburban College.  We encourage you as a taxpayer to take advantage of this opportunity to engage in this ongoing dialogue taking place statewide.  Please feel free to share widely. More information including copies of testimony at previous hearings, the Commission’s 2012 report, and a list of Commissioners, is available at:  http://www2.illinois.gov/gov/budget/Pages/BFR-testimony.aspx   RSVPs or questions regarding public hearings can be directed to liana.semchuk@illinois.gov.
