QC-Times 'Big Story': Illinois Budget Stalemate

Each Sunday, the Quad-City Times publishes "The Big Story," an in-depth report in the Sunday paper. WVIK previews these stories Thursdays during Morning Edition.

About a month ago, Dan Petrella, Springfield Bureau Chief for Lee Enterprises, wrote about the impact of the Illinois budget impasse, days before the stop-gap measure was set to expire.

This week, he's writing about the stalemate again, after the Illinois Senate has made some progress on a budget compromise.

Lacy Scarmana talked with Petrella about the impact of the stalemate, and what would need to happen to get the Senate's proposal to Governor Bruce Rauner's desk.

You can read Petrella's report Sunday, January 29 in the Quad-City Times.
