Illinois General Assembly sends stopgap budget deal to Rauner

Both houses of the Illinois General Assembly have passed a stopgap budget deal that would ensure schools open in the fall and would fund state services for the next six months. The deal has now been sent to Governor Bruce Rauner to be signed.

The deal is expected to get Rauner's signature on the last day of the fiscal year.

Two CPS-related bills also have passed the General Assembly: a $250 million pension pickup for the Chicago teachers' pension fund, and a bill that allows Chicago to raise property taxes earmarked for teacher pension. Read more from ABC7Chicago.
