Question of the day

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

* The last scheduled day of spring session is tomorrow. The end of the fiscal year is June 30th. On what date do you think the General Assembly will vote on a budget (complete or partial) that can then be sent to Gov. Rauner?

Don’t forget to explain your answer.

- Posted by Rich Miller        

  1. - Smalls - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:18 pm:

    January 14, 2019

    The date a new governor takes office.

  2. - Precinct Captain - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:21 pm:

    Since you said “partial,” I suppose a schools budget (K-12) will end up becoming law, so sometime in July.

  3. - walker - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:22 pm:

    Late June.

    When Rauner releases 16-18 votes in the House.

  4. - old pol - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:27 pm:

    Partial, stop-gap in late June with R votes.

  5. - Get it Solved - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:28 pm:

    Maybe by the end of June. K-12 is the key bargaining chip that impacts every district. I don’t think the House or Senate Dems agree to fund K-12 without a full budget deal.

  6. - Will Caskey - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:39 pm:

    I see no reason why they would have enough shame to do the bare minimum of their jobs now as opposed to any time in the past two years

  7. - Dirty Red - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:45 pm:

    Partial on June 30 unless the third floor wants to bet the farm and first born on Trump’s mid-terms.

  8. - Romeo - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:47 pm:

    January 14, 2019.

    Simply put, we will not have a budget at all during Rauner’s term. What a joke.

  9. - From the 'Dale to HP - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:48 pm:

    Nothing will happen tomorrow. Maybe they went a K-12 approps bill over in in June, though Rauner’s going to have to throw a bunch of money at CPS for that to happen.

    Dems should send SB1 and SB6 over and let the Governor figure it out.

  10. - Tom S - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 3:58 pm:

    The democrats have refused to do anything that might be confuse with bargaining with the Governor so why start now?

  11. - Saluki - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:02 pm:

    July 19th. Pick any year you like.

  12. - Anon221 - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:07 pm:

    I know what I would like them to do, and have stated so on two other threads today. As to what they WILL do… the Magic 8 Ball says…

  13. - Morty - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:07 pm:

    Well Tom, if BVR was interested in anything other than the full and complete decimation of unions in Illinois he could have resonably claimed victories on:

    Multiyear property tax freeze
    Pension reform
    Workman’s comp reform
    Senate leader term limits
    School funding reform
    Criminal justice reform

    All done in bipartison fashion with Democrats

    But we all know none of that matters if he can’t destroy unions so

  14. - BD - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:08 pm:

    Soon, the Governor is working hard to pass a balanced budget and a ground swell is rising up.

  15. - Nick Name - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:08 pm:

    The GA will pass a budget during a 2018-2019 lame duck session, and the new governor (please, God) will sign it on January 14, 2019.

  16. - Annonin' - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:10 pm:

    Let’s see Sam Madonia’s birthday is June 30 maybe DopeyDuct will release the GOPies stooges to vote a budget on that date

  17. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:12 pm:

    Sometime after Bastille Day but well before the Dog Days of August. I’ll guess June 54th.

  18. - A guy - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:46 pm:

    June 30.
    I’m a Plus 1 to Walk’s explanation at 3:22.

  19. - RNUG - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 4:59 pm:

    September, 2017 for a K-12 partial budget

    July, 2018 - another K-12 partial budget

    December, 2018 (lame duck) to be presented to the next Governor

    As to the reasoning, K-12 school funding appears to be the only budget item Rauner cares about, so that’s all we’ll get as long as he is in office.

    Hedging at something like a trillion to one odds, the IGOP finally abandon Rauner and pass a full veto proof budget this July.

  20. - illini - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 5:06 pm:

    I hope Walker is correct. But I have many doubts.

    Yet @Morty has a point - “But we all know none of that matters if he can’t destroy unions” and I might add HIGHER EDUCATION as well.

    My best guess is that everyone will take the cowards way out and do yet another stopgap, but yet provide full year funding for K-12.

    There are no Profiles in Courage in our GA and we have a Governor that will not DoHisJob and who does not care.

  21. - Dixie chick - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 5:16 pm:

    The twelfth of never!

  22. - Say What? - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 5:20 pm:

    When hell freezes over or the Republicans take the House…

  23. - Annonin' - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 6:08 pm:

    We picker June 30 Sam Madonia’s birthday

  24. - RIJ - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 6:16 pm:

    The Twelvth of Never was my first thought, too, but I’ll say (after having to refer to a calendar to pick a specific date) May 24, 2019.

  25. - JS Mill - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 6:22 pm:

    =My best guess is that everyone will take the cowards way out and do yet another stopgap, but yet provide full year funding for K-12.=

    He has not done that yet so probably not even that. The state is behind $1 billion for schools this year and owes from previous years.

  26. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 6:42 pm:

    In which I once again agree with Annonin’, June 30. If it happens, maybe Sam will have us on his show.

  27. - illini - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 6:57 pm:

    Agreeing with quite a few comments that K-12 funding will be passed so that schools can open in August.

    The real pressure for a full budget will only come when this issue is tied with the rest and not treated as a sacred cow that gets preferential treatment.

  28. - jim b - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 7:19 pm:

    People crack me up. There hasn’t been a BALANCE BUDGET in 20 years. Yet make Rauner the scapegoat for holding up a passed budget the past two years. Budgets that overspend and NEVER REFORM. The state has underfunded report deficits of 120BLN which are more toward 150BLN. None which is much of Rauner doing. Credit ratings that crashed during the Quinn era that cost the state a additional 365mln a year. Go back and bury your heads in the sand as the democrat controlled house and senate run the state into the ground.

  29. - Touré's Latte - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 7:29 pm:

    June 30th the stop gap funding in place for the July 4th parades. Not saying what year.

  30. - JDuc - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 8:46 pm:

    January of 2019 at the earliest ,if Rauner loses election (Full budget).

    July to August 2017 for “stopgap”.

    January 2013 if Rauner loses, after his 2nd term as governor (Full budget).

  31. - peon - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 9:06 pm:

    Sadly I see nothing other than stopgaps or patches until the election of Nov 2018.

    But there will need to be a few stopgaps/patches to make it through this time.

  32. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 30, 17 @ 10:43 pm:

    The General Assembly will vote on a budgetary “stopgap” hybrid with full budget framing, but will be just window dressing to the actual items that, when it gets to the Governor, be the stopgap that will keep the state from purposeful destruction, to just passive disarray and pain, but afloat.

    This will happen on June 29th…
