Quinn Signs New State Budget; Cuts Funding For Targeted Prisons; Spending Plan Also Cuts Education Dollars


Just hours before the start of the new fiscal year, Governor Pat Quinn has signed the state budget into law.

 

The spending plan reduces money for education by about $200 million and child-welfare programs by around $85 million.  But Quinn used his veto power to cut out funding for two state prisons that he has targeted for closure -- the Tamms supermax prison and the Dwight women's correctional center.  Quinn hopes to reallocate that funding back to child welfare programs.
