The Illinois General Assembly is once again ending its annual legislative session without passing a budget.
Although Senate Democrats this month passed both a budget bill and a variety of tax hikes to pay for it, House Democrats cannot agree on what to do.
Try to meet Governor Bruce Rauner’s demands, as the Senate tried and failed to do with the so-called grand bargain? Or go it alone, as the Senate ended up doing.
House Speaker Michael Madigan says his fellow Democrats are concerned about how they saw Rauner working with the Senate.
