AARP IL to release major new study on how Illinois voters feel about state fiscal crisis; Anger disillusionment rising

CHICAGO — AARP Illinois will release a new statewide survey of Illinois registered voters, age 25 and older, on rising anger voters have over the state’s continued fiscal crisis at simultaneous news conferences in three locations on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

The survey is part of “Enough Is Enough,” a statewide, multi-year initiative by AARP Illinois, to demand long-term fiscal responsibility. The poll contains major new findings about how voter disillusionment is affecting Illinoisans’ attitudes about the state’s future. AARP Illinois is urging voters to demand that the candidates for governor and the General Assembly put forward detailed, pragmatic solutions to address a $1.2 billion deficit in the state’s most recent budget, catch up on $7.5 billion in unpaid bills and address more than $130 billion in long-term debt.

AARP will conduct news conferences at 10 am Tuesday, Oct. 2, in three locations across Illinois.
