SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Although $1.4 billion has been vetoed from the state budget, senators do not expect to be returning to Springfield anytime soon to address the reductions made by Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The decision by the Senate’s Democrat leadership not to take up the budget cuts may mark the first time in history that a Governor’s spending vetoes won’t be reviewed and voted on by the Senate. That has frustrated and disappointed many Republican senators, according to State Senator Pamela Althoff (R-Crystal Lake)." /> Skip to Main Content
