Rauner prepares closures, spending cuts if no budget OK’d

( KTRS ) Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration says it is reviewing Illinois juvenile detention centers for closure, preparing to close state museums and will ground state aircraft if there’s no budget agreement.

Rauner released a statement Tuesday that it must prepare for the possibility there won’t be a deal on spending by July 1.

Legislative Democrats approved a spending plan but acknowledge it’s at least $3 billion short of revenue.

Lawmakers left town at the end of their scheduled spring session Sunday but plan to return.

The Rauner administration says the Department of Juvenile Justice has 500 extra beds and officials will prepare to close as many as two facilities.
