  • FY 2005 Capital Budget


  • The Fiscal Year 2005 Capital Budget, which reflects careful stewardship of taxpayer dollars and targets scarce capital resources to strategic priorities such as job creation, education, and public health and safety. This capital budget represents the first time the states entire capital program is consolidated in one appropriation bill and document, to improve understanding and accountability of the states capital program. This budget includes key projects in ten regions across the state as part of Opportunity Returns, my plan to restore economic opportunity throughout Illinois. Since each regions economy has a distinct identity, Opportunity Returns, the most aggressive job creation program in the nation, makes local investments that pay significant economic dividends to the state. This capital budget also expands investment in school construction for our K-12 education system, and assures a vital transportation network to underpin regional economies. It also proposes major investments in environmental programs including Brownfield renewal and water protection. Other major investments will support public health and safety. I promised to bring more transparency to the states capital budget. The people and legislators of Illinois now have a document that clearly outlines the States entire capital program, which includes ongoing work as well as new projects proposed for fiscal year 2005.
