On the final day of the fiscal year Thursday, Illinois legislators passed a temporary budget.
The package easily passed first the House, then the Senate Thursday; it now goes to the governor who is expected to sign it.
The plan will send money to social service organizations that have waited since last July for payment. It'll also get money to universities, allow road work to continue, and ensure schools can able to open on time this fall.
Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan says it is the result of good faith efforts.
