(Chicago, IL) — After two years without one, Illinois now has a state budget. The House joined the Senate and voted to override Governor Rauner’s veto of the budget and tax increase approved over the weekend. Ten Republicans joined Democrats on the override. After the votes, House Speaker Michael Madigan said his colleagues didn’t do what was easy, but what was best for the future of the state. There is an income tax hike, but none of the pro-business, anti-labor reforms Governor Rauner had demanded.
