(CBS) — Governor Quinn says he found this his toughest budget to deliver to Illinois lawmakers, and it’s getting criticism from both sides of the aisle, reports WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore.
Gov. Quinn told Illinois lawmakers there are no gimmicks or fake numbers in this budget.
“This is the most difficult budget I have ever submitted to you. But it is also an honest budget that reflects our fiscal challenges, pays down the backlog of bills, and addresses funds that have been under appropriated for too long,” said Quinn.
