SPRINGFIELD, IL —- The Governor has come out with dire numbers concerning the state’s fiscal situation. Pritzker’s office of Management and Budget released data last week showing the state is $3.9 billion in the hole for the current fiscal year.
How will the state address it? Republican State Rep. Avery Bourne says the failure of the progressive income tax on Election Day shows voters want the state to find a different way to fill the budget gap.
The Governor says that he will be meeting with the four legislative leaders to bring the budget within balance this year.
