Quinn To Seek $200 Million More From Lawmakers

Governor Pat Quinn is asking lawmakers to approve more than $200 million in additional spending… on top of the $35 billion general revenue budget they OK’d last spring. 


More than half of the supplemental appropriation request would pay for back pay raises that 25,000 state workers were promised two years ago, but did not receive. 


Another $40 million would cover the cost of transitioning Illinois prisons from a three-meal-a-day schedule for inmates to just two-meals-a-day.  Corrections officials say reducing the number of meals while still meeting federal calorie and nutrition guidelines while require changing meal and drink portion sizes, at a cost of millions of dollars per prison.
