Quinn to Make "Major Budgetary Announcement"

CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's office says he's getting ready to make a "major budgetary announcement."

The Democrat is set to hold a news conference Wednesday morning in downtown Chicago.

So far, few details have been released.

Quinn hasn't yet signed a key part of the Illinois budget that gives the state comptroller the ability to issue paychecks to tens of thousands of state employees.

The measure also provides money for agencies in charge of things like state campgrounds and running two state fairs. It contains a 250-page spending plan for state agencies.

The governor has until July 15 to sign House Bill 214. The fiscal year began July 1.
