Illinois House to consider temporary state budget Wednesday

( KTRS ) The Illinois House is scheduled to take another run at a one-month state spending plan when lawmakers return to Springfield.

A committee hearing is set for Wednesday on legislation from the Senate which would approve spending $2.3 billion to get the state through the July while a long-term fiscal blueprint remains in the air.
The 2016 budget year began July 1 without an agreed-upon plan because of legislative Democrats’ dispute with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

A Cook County court ruled Tuesday that without a budget, paychecks to workers cannot be cut after mid-July.

The House plans to be in session Thursday too. The Senate returns next week.
