IL approves state budget...finally
Illinois Lawmakers Approve State Budget, Ending Record Overtime Session

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois lawmakers adopted a $45.5 billion state budget Saturday, 54 days into a record-breaking overtime legislative session and three weeks after the start of the fiscal year.
The new budget, which erased a multibillion-dollar deficit, increased spending on education and health care but provided for across the board cuts elsewhere by as much as 4 percent.

Voting on $11 billion in capital construction projects was delayed until November.


Anyone know the details on this? I listented to Blago's speech when he proposed it and it sounded like a good move to me. Granted, I've been focusing on the national scene and have paid much attention to state budgets since I stopped working for the state almost ten years ago.

1. unfortunately,
rumors are that there are some lil-devils in the details, and the thing may yet collapse.

Today's papers haven't had a change to chew through the burrocratic crap just yet.
