DeWitte Appointed to Budget Oversight Panel

From State Senator Don DeWitte:

Ensuring the Gov. is spending federal COVID funds appropriately

Don Dewitte

This week I was honored to be appointed to serve on the Legislative Budget Oversight Commission, which is tasked with providing oversight on the Governor’s discretionary, including the federal CARES Act funding the state received to help respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor has used his gubernatorial emergency powers to unilaterally make decisions regarding the state’s response–without any oversight from the legislative branch.

It is my hope that this commission will finally provide the proper checks and balances that have been so desperately called for by my colleagues and me.

While the make-up of this commission is unbalanced with 14 Democrats and 8 Republicans, it will at least provide Republicans seats at the table, giving us the ability to oversee the Governor’s actions and allow us to keep you informed on how the Governor is spending the state’s federal relief funds.

I look forward to serving on this commission to ensure that taxpayers dollars and federal COVID relief funds are being spent appropriately and in the best interest of our communities.

As always, never hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance to you. I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Stay safe!

  1. DeWitte is what I call a RINO of the first water. A total fake.

  2. what are you going to do with the waste of $$ he spent on PPE from CHINA! that was inferier product to boot?

    How do we get them $$ back?

  3. DeWitte, like Reick and most GOP legislators is a whore and controlled opposition.

    When Madigan cuts one of his legendary sulphuric farts, DeWitte scrambles to get closer to inhale what he calls, ‘the sweet smell of success.’

  4. LoL. That’s DeWitte for you. Rezin and Reick some times beat him to the ‘seat’ of all Illinois disasters. Madigan doesn’t mind at all, he like GOP footwipes.
