State Senator Bill Brady says he's putting the brakes on Governor Quinn's efforts to go around the legislature to get more money.  Brady says lawmakers didn't give Quinn the authority to borrow more so he's trying to take money from funds that are designated for certain charities.  Brady has filed a bill that would prevent the governor from taking money from the special funds.  He says Quinn borrowed more than a million dollars from income tax check-off charities during the last fiscal year.  He's asked the Governor to repay the money.  Quinn has agreed, but Brady says the governor shouldn't have the authority to take money that doesn't belong to the state.
