State Budget Update

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Hoping to end weeks of gridlock, Illinois House approved a possible state budget today despite criticism from the governor.

The plan offers a major spending increase for education but little new money for other programs.

The measure passed 99-to-nine, 70 days after the legislative session was supposed to end and nine days after the old state budget expired.

The Senate will consider the plan later today.
