Illinois may soon have a state budget for the first time in more than two years. On Tuesday, during an unusual Independence Day session, state senators passed legislation that would end Illinois’ record-setting budget impasse. Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed the measure because it raises taxes, but the senate later voted to override him. The bill awaits a similar vote in the house.
