DownloadSPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Retail Merchants Association (IRMA) issued the following statement regarding Governor Rauner’s budget address:

“Retail serves as an important economic engine for the state, and yet we continue to see razor thin margins as regulations, mandates and taxes continue to squeeze Main Street retailers. IRMA is concerning about the continued cuts and devaluing of Medicaid providers as well as its impact on the populations they serve. Pharmacies serve on the front lines when it comes to treating Medicaid patients, especially in areas with few medical options. IRMA stands ready, as it always has, to work with both Governor Rauner and legislative leaders on both sides of the aisle in passing a budget that will best serve Illinois’ constituents and restore its stability and competitiveness,” said Rob Karr, president & CEO, IRMA.
