Paul Lisnek discussed the Illinois state budget

WGN political analyst Paul Lisnek discussed the Illinois state budget on WGN Morning News Tuesday.

There is a concern about schools not having the funding needed for the start school in the fall.

However, Lisnek said that a similar situation occurred last year and schools were still able to open.

“I anticipate the Senate will take up the $7 billion budget and probably pass it, and Rauner will go on as we have for the last year,” Lisnek said.
