House Clears Budget

May 28, 2014


(Springfield, IL)  --  There's some agreement on the state's budget for next year.  State reps passed a 35-billion-dollar spending plan yesterday.  It essentially holds spending flat across the board but includes a slight increase for education and a 92-million-dollar cut to the DOC.  The budget isn't headed to the Senate yet because House Speaker Michael Madigan pulled a procedural move to keep it in the House for now.
