By a 37-0-11 vote, the Illinois Senate passed a one-month stopgap spending plan that would cover certain vital services.
The Democrat's $2.2 billion temporary budget plan, which drew opposition from Republicans, still needs approval from the House before it could go to Gov. Bruce Rauner.
Rauner has previously stated that he would not support a temporary spending plan.
Under the Democrat's one-month budget, spending would be covered 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.
The Senate voted on the temporary budget proposal after Illinois entered the 2016 fiscal year Wednesday without a spending plan in place.
UPDATE (3:52 p.m.): After approval in the Senate, the one-month budget failed in the House. The legislation got 67 "yes" votes in the House, four votes shy of what was required for passage.
