Lawmakers: Don’t Get Hopes Up For Budget

(Springfield, IL) — Illinois’ legislative leaders will meet for the first time in months with Governor Bruce Rauner, but they’re warning not to get hopes up for a budget. The meeting, set for Tuesday, is the first sit-down conversation about Illinois’ long-overdue state budget between the leaders in seven months. Lawmakers say it’s good to see everyone talking, but they don’t expect a solution this week.
