Bogus Budget

The Senate Democrats also took action to override five of the 20 budget vetoes issued by the Governor last month. The majority admittedly passed a bogus budget in May, acknowledging their plan would spend $4 billion more than the state expects to receive in tax revenue during Fiscal Year 2016. Gov. Rauner issued the vetoes to keep his promise about addressing Illinois’ historic fiscal crisis brought on by years of overspending.
