Republican lawmakers vote on proposed budgets

Posted by wlpo on May 14, 2011

Two state budget proposals have passed their respective chambers in the state legislature, but only one received bipartisan support.

While Republicans and Democrats worked together on a new state budget in the Illinois House, the Senate was divided along party lines Friday.

State Representative Pam Roth, a Republican from Morris, supported the house budget plan.

A statement released from Republican State Senator Sue Rezin’s office had a much different take on the budget passed by the senate.

The release accuses senate Democrats of rushing through budget proposals that would lock the state into a permanent 67 percent tax increase and likely force higher tax increases in the future.
