Illinois House Okays New Spending Plan

(Springfield, IL)  —  Democrats in the Illinois House are on-board with a plan to spend 800-million dollars to get universities and social service providers through the next few months. Lawmakers yesterday approved a new stopgap spending plan. Illinois still doesn’t have a budget, and the spending plan leaves most of the rest of state government without any certainty. The Illinois Senate still needs to take-up the proposal.
