Latest budget proposal shot down in Springfield

Posted by wlpo on May 23, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Illinois House has overwhelmingly rejected a $34.5 billion “doomsday” budget that would spell out deep cuts to schools and social services next year.

The budget plan was proposed by legislative leaders after it became clear there weren’t enough votes to support an earlier budget that relied on extending Illinois’ temporary income tax increase. Lawmakers rejected the budget proposal 103-6 with only Democrats voted for the plan.

Republicans say lawmakers could build a better budget.
