Illinois State Budget Extension

New developments tonight on the state budget, the Illinois State Government will not shut down, a one month budget extension has been granted to keep the government operating next month.

This legislature and the Governor failed to agree on a spending plan for next year during its regular session. The current budget expires next week, Governor Blagojevich and lawmakers must still work out a long term compromise deal.

This won't be easy as neither side seems ready to budge.
