Take Action to #GetItDoneIL

June 22, 2016

#GetItDoneIL launches RIGHT NOW!

As you know by now, the state of Illinois still does not have a budget for the fiscal year that is set to end just days from now on June 30th – much less a budget for the fiscal year that begins in just a few days.

With that in mind, join the “Get it Done IL” (#GetItDoneIL) campaign to end the budget impasse before June 30th!

Take Action:

  1. JOIN the #GetItDoneIL Facebook page
  2. Share the digital banner seen above – make it your profile pic, tell people about #GetItDoneIL, spread the word.
  3. Take pictures of yourself using this #GetItDoneIL sign and tag your legislators/state elected officials on social media!

This campaign is not about choosing sides in the seemingly never-ending debate in Springfield. #GetItDoneIL is about coming together and unifying as citizens of this state, to demand that our elected officials do the same by passing and enacting a state budget. The consequences of inaction – ours and theirs – are simply too great to ignore.

Every state legislator and state-level elected official needs to know just how many people want and need them to get this job done!

For more state budget and policy updates, don’t forget to join us for our Public Policy Caucus on June 28th!
