State Budget Work Coming Down to the Wire


Illinois lawmakers are making progress on a new state budget… through a series of party line votes.

 

Democrats are using their overwhelming majority in both chambers to approve budget bills that maintain funding levels for education and human services.

 

Republicans object to the budget, saying it spends too much and fails to address the state’s underlying fiscal crisis.

 

Legislative leaders say there is still time, once the budget work is done, to address pension reform before Friday’s scheduled adjournment.
