Illinois legislature wrapping up spring session
The Democratic leaders of the Illinois General Assembly had planned on being done by now — off on their summer recess. But they have yet to come to agreement on a state budget — owing in part to some tough decisions that have to be made without the extra cash state government had on hand during the pandemic.
