What's up with the state budget, and what's it mean for HIV services?

June 3, 2010

Yes, we have a state budget. Well, sort of. Actually, it’s kinda complicated.

Let’s break it down.

The General Assembly passed on May 25 a state budget. However, this budget is deeply flawed. It doesn’t address the state’s nearly $6 billion in unpaid bills, relies too heavily on one-time revenue, and jeopardizes services for all Illinoisans. Most importantly, legislators failed to pass new revenue, the only sustainable solution to the state’s budget problems.
