Budget decisions not only matter Springfield deferred this spring

With the November election on their minds, state lawmakers used their spring session to pass a stopgap budget that neither extended a tax increase set to expire Jan. 1, six months into the fiscal year, or cut spending in anticipation of fewer tax dollars.

But there were other key topics deferred including a Cook County pension revamp, and a long-discussed makeover in how the state gives school districts money. In the case of both, the Senate took action but the House ran out the clock.
