Illinois politicians, state agencies, prepare for possible government shutdown

(KTRS/AP) – Illinois residents may be facing a partial government shutdown if a budget deal is not reached in the next several hours.

Governor Bruce Rauner says a shutdown could be worth the pain if it brings fundamental change to business and politics in the state. The governor addressed employees at the Illinois Emergency Management Agency a day before the fiscal starts without a budget agreement.

Rauner wants changes that he wants changes that he says would make it less expensive to do business in the state. Democrats say it’s more important to have a budget in place so state services aren’t interrupted.

The Illinois House will hear testimony from state officials on their plans if the budget battle is not resolved.
