It’s been 700 days since a full year budget was in effect for Illinois. Today marks the final day of the spring session for lawmakers to send the Governor a budget for his approval or veto.
The Illinois Senate has already passed one. Democrat Senator Andy Manar says that House has a good plan to vote on and the calls on them to approve it.
Manar adds spending in the budget they passed mirrors the caps that Governor Rauner laid out in his budget framework.
