Illinois has unfortunately gone two years without a complete budget. Gov. Bruce Rauner has a chance to do his job tomorrow and put an end to the state’s suffering.

The Illinois Senate has been working on a balanced budget plan that funds higher education and human services. Now it’s time to see a balanced budget plan from the governor, which he hasn’t presented in two years but is required to do.

The governor is scheduled to deliver his budget speech at noon and unveil his plan for the next state budget year, July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.

The Illinois Constitution requires the governor to propose a balanced budget.
