Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle presented her proposed 2023 spending plan in a speech before the county board of commissioners Thursday morning, touting the $8.75 billion budget as a bold investment in addressing economic insecurity and the root causes of violence.
Preckwinkle noted the spending plan has been bolstered by a federal injection of pandemic relief dollars, which will allow the county to launch an array of new programs, including a basic income pilot the board president announced she intends to make permanent.
