Local lawmakers – again – pan Quinn budget address
Proposal called “dead on arrival”
“The most difficult budget Illinois has ever faced,” according to Gov. Pat Quinn, is likely “dead on arrival in the House,” according to a local state representative.
McHenry County’s representatives in the General Assembly, as in previous years, did not have a high opinion of the $35.6 billion budget proposal for 2014 that Quinn unveiled Wednesday afternoon.
But the fatal flaw, according to state Rep. Mike Tryon, is that Quinn estimates he will have $500 million more in revenue to spend than the House does.
