Stalemate: Illinois entering 4th month without budget - Kurt Erickson, Pantagraph

Southern Illinois University, for example, recently announced a series of a program cuts designed to ensure the institution can continue operating into the new year. Eastern Illinois University saved about $10 million through a series of cost-cutting measures enacted in the summer, including employee furloughs, attrition and reductions to athletic programs. "We know that this cannot go on like this," Brady said. At issue is the Republican governor's insistence that Democrats approve a number of pro-business, anti-union proposals before he signs off on a tax increase designed to balance the budget.
