* Press release…

Senate President Don Harmon and House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch issued a joint statement on progress toward an agreed budget.

“When we came to Springfield in January, we made it clear that our top priority was a fiscally responsible budget that prioritized hardworking Illinoisans. That continues to be true. Conversation is ongoing and negotiations are productive. We are committed to passing a good, balanced budget for the people of Illinois.”

Both chambers will return next week to finish work for the spring session. The Senate is scheduled to return Wednesday and Thursday. The House is scheduled to return Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

* But, wait. WGN TV just told its audience that the budget is already passed

Illinois lawmakers wrapped up a busy week in Springfield Friday after passing the state’s budget by the democratic imposed May 19 deadline.
