Manar Talks Budget Negotiations

Story by WBGZ Radio

Illinois Senate budget hearings in Springfield continue to progress and the Appropriations Committee Chair, State Senator Andy Manar, a Democrat of Bunker Hill, says he is confident the current budget will be used as a framework for the next budget. Manar says spending limits were set in the current budget so state bills will not continue to pile up, and that after the long budget stalemate, he doesn’t see lawmakers wanting to start another budget dilemma.

Manar says the relative calm in the news about this year’s state budget shows that it has been successful for Illinois.
