State Representative Allen Skillcorn says the budget deal taking place in Springfield isn't really balanced. He says there's $600 to $700 million difference. The bill has been passed by the Senate, only 2 Republicans in the Senate said no. The bill has funding for tax payer abortion, a few Democrats in the House voted against it.

Adam Schuster from Illinois Policy Institute says he's hesitant to call this a budget. He says Democrats and Republicans that voted for this are saying the budget is balanced, but it actually isn't. He says they keep spending more year after year.
