Illinois House Passes Smaller Budget

The Illinois House has approved a smaller 2015 budget.

Some lawmakers say this budget will lead to layoffs and further delays in paying the state's bills.  

The approximately $35.7 billion spending plan passed the Democrat-controlled chamber now moves to the Senate.  

This plan was developed and passed after House Speaker Michael Madigan announced that the extension of the temporary income tax increase was dead.

That meant that lawmakers would have $1.8 billion less revenue to work with next year.  

If the tax increase is brought back or another idea to increase revenue is brought up it likely won’t happen until after the November election.
