Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has presented a new $8.3 billion budget to the City Council.
The plan presented yesterday includes no increased taxes and no new fees.
Emanuel also says the new budget cuts the deficit to $298 million.
But Emanuel also called for more action from state lawmakers to address public-sector pensions.
Emanuel says Chicago will soon be on the hook for more than a billion dollars a year in pension expenses.
He says lawmakers in Springfield need to, quote, “step up and take their share of responsibility.”
