Senate Dems to Dissect GOP Candidate's Budget

(AP) -- One skirmish in the battle for Illinois governor will take place in a state Senate committee.

Democrats plan a hearing Wednesday on budget ideas they say are backed by Republican candidate for governor Bill Brady. They include 10 percent across-the-board cuts.

The Democrats are likely to focus on the service cuts that would be required, part of an effort to portray Brady as too extreme and to build support for other budget ideas.

Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn wants to cut spending but also raise income taxes.
