As the budget making process begins. Democrats are pointing out that Republicans may have complained about the income tax increased that passed last year – but they are happy to spend it this year. The Governor and four legislative leaders met this week to start work on the spending plan and Senate President John Cullerton says because Bruce Rauner is fine including all the extra revenue from the tax hike in the upcoming budget revenue forecast, he should stop telling everyone that his plan is to make a small rollback of the increase.
Both Democrats and Republicans agreed to name budgeteers to lead the negotiations.
