IL State Budget

IL State Budget

At noon today, Gov. Pat Quinn will introduce his proposed budget for FY 2010 that begins on July 1, 2009. The proposed budget for the Illinois Department of Transportation will decrease from $2.39 billion to $2.32 billion. State funds for the Illinois Department of Transportation are being cut but federal funds increased (thanks to the federal stimulus bill). Included in the IDOT cut is a $2 million cut for the Traffic Safety Division (to about $32 million). Gov. Quinn proposes to maintain state support for Amtrak at $28 million a year. He also proposes increases for many downstate public transit agencies but some cuts for Chicago area mass transit.
