Lawmakers Grant Quinn Extension on Budget Address


Illinois lawmakers are giving Governor Pat Quinn what he asked for.

 

The General Assembly has approved a measure allowing Quinn to move his annual budget address back by a month.

 

That means the speech on March 26th will fall after the primary.

 

Republicans say Quinn did that deliberately to avoid having to answer questions about the state’s temporary income tax hike before voters go to the polls.

 

Quinn says he needs more time as he crafts a five-year budget plan for the state.
