With Illinois about to begin the 2016 fiscal year on Wednesday without a budget, the Democrat-controlled legislature could reportedly vote tomorrow on a one-month stopgap spending plan to cover certain vital services.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, funding as part of the Democrat's $2.2 billion temporary budget plan would cover spending for various programs within the Department of Human Services and Department of Children and Family Services. Funds would also be put toward Medicaid spending, community-based mental health care and programs using GPS to monitor sex offenders, among other items.
A big question mark is whether Gov. Bruce Rauner would OK a temporary spending plan, something he has previously said that he would not support.
