IRMA responds to Rauner's budget address

By The Madison County Record | Feb 14, 2018

To the Editor:

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.

The Illinois Retail Merchants Association is concerned 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.
