The Illinois House and Senate approve a state budget. This comes only after seven weeks of overtime budget negotiations.

The Senate's 51-5 vote came 75 minutes after a 105-9 House vote approved a $45 billion spending plan agreed to three weeks after the fiscal year began.

The fiscal year 2005 budget closes an anticipated $2.3 billion budget deficit while investing new funding in schools and health care.
