Budget on the agenda for Illinois lawmakers

Posted by wlpo on May 29, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Illinois Senate is expected to advance a 2015 budget as the Legislature moves closer to adjourning its spring session.

Lawmakers return to the Capitol Thursday with the $37.5 billion budget and several other issues on their agenda. But the biggest issue remains the 2015 budget, which passed the House on Tuesday.

It keeps spending flat for schools and most agencies next year, but could lead to layoffs, facility closures and a postelection extension of Illinois’ temporary income tax increase.
