Senate budget committees continue to meet

As the General Assembly enters the home stretch to the scheduled session adjournment date of May 31, the Senate appropriations committees continue to meet to discuss budget requests from the state’s agencies, boards and commissions. Lawmakers will use this information as they prepare to enter into budget negotiations in earnest over the coming weeks.

This week, the Senate Appropriations II Committee heard testimony from the University of Illinois, as well as some of the state’s largest agencies—including the Departments of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Natural Resources, and Agriculture.
