Illinois lawmakers have wrapped up their spring session. But they left some work on the table.
The General Assembly did send the governor a budget. But Sen. Matt Murphy, R-Palatine, says it contains "gimmicks" meant to disguise bad policies.
"Pushing bills off. Moving them around," he said. "Trying to deceive the people into believing that fiscal responsibility has finally been visited upon their Capitol when clearly it has not."
The Illinois Senate approved the measure Thursday, and Governor Pat Quinn says he'll sign it into law.
