Legislation to keep Illinois government functioning without a full budget stalled Thursday. Democrats and Republicans have dueling proposals to keep paychecks flowing to state employees.
The Democratic plan would pay state workers through the end of the budget year — June 30th.
The Republicans responded with a plan to pay state workers forever, even if Illinois never adopts a full budget.
Shortly after that, Gov. Bruce Rauner came out with a video saying how terrible it was that Democrats put an end date on their bill.
