Due to responsible spending and careful management of state resources, State Senator Darren Bailey’s office is returning $58,000 from his district’s FY22 operating budget to state coffers.
“My team in the 55th District has spent the last year helping constituents while operating within a fiscally strong, responsible budget,” said Sen. Bailey. “I believe that all elected officials need to be responsible stewards of taxpayer resources, which is why I take pride in the fact that we are returning nearly $60,000 back to the state. I will continue to fight to instill a sense of responsible spending throughout state government.”
Each year senate districts are allotted certain amounts of money for district operations. Senator Bailey’s district was allotted $214,000 for the 2021-22 fiscal year which began July 1, 2021 and ran through June 30, 2022.
