The self-imposed deadline for a new state budget is drawing near. Democrat leaders delivered some good news and bad news at the state capitol today. The good news - the top two democrat legislative leaders huddled behind closed doors with Governor Blagojevich today. It was the first serious budget discussion of the spring. The bad news - the leaders talked only generally about the budget and signaled there are still some major obstacles to clear before an agreement is reached. They plan to meet again tomorrow.
