State Budget Update

You should expect a vote on a state budget by the end of the day, but don't expect an agreement. Democrats in an Illinois House panel yesterday approved the Senate Democratic budget that would raise five-and-a-half billion-dollars in taxes. Governor Rauner in promising to veto the plan because it doesn't contain a property tax freeze. If lawmakers approve the plan and leave the Illinois Capitol, the state could very well go another year without a state budget.
