The best case scenario for the State of Illinois to end the budget stalemate is a short term budget that Governor Bruce Rauner has proposed. That's according to Dr. Kent Redfield who says a short-term budget would include a spending plan for Illinois schools and get the state to the end of the year and through the November election.

Dr. Redfield warns the longer this budget stalemate goes, the farther in debt Illinois gets.

The state is paying salaries of state employees and other payments are being made through consent decrees but Dr. Redfield points out, the state is without money to buy every day items like paper or ink for printers.
