How about "City department heads review their proposed budgets with aldermen who never have to justify their own budgets."

The common sense solution would be to require finger prints on ballots which would be scanned and compared to all other finger prints affixed to other ballots. Any duplicate prints would invalidate both votes and subject the person to investigation/prosecution for vote fraud. Until votes are validated there would only be provisional winners.

$1.6B drop in Illinois revenue predicted next year

2 months, 1 week ago from the Associated Press

That's down from $36 billion this year

Illinois is expected to see a $1.58 billion drop in revenue if the state's income tax increase rolls back as planned.

Officials from the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability told lawmakers Tuesday the preliminary revenue forecast for the next fiscal year will be $34.4 billion. That's down from $36 billion this year.

The drop in revenue reflects an expected decrease in the state's income tax. The temporary hike is scheduled to drop from its current 5 percent to 3.75 percent next January. Some Democrats want the tax increase extended but many Republicans oppose it.

Gov. Pat Quinn plans to give his budget address in March. The event serves as the official opening of negotiations on the state budget, which lawmakers are tasked with passing before adjourning for the year.
