For John, BLUF: Things are a mess in the State Capitol, Springfield. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Chicago Tribune and Reporters Monique Garcia and Kim Geiger, on 3 July.
I guess the good news is that my Daughter's new home state's Legislature is moving forward on a budget that makes some sense.
On the other hand, Fitch Ratings said:
Fitch said it will "continue to monitor the developments in Illinois," but cautioned that "temporary or partial measures, or a failure to enact a budget within the context of this session, would result in a downgrade." The agency warned that without action, "the state risks losing full control of its budgetary decisions."Oh, Oh.
Hat tip to The Drudge Report.
