Increased coverage of the consequences and path forward for Illinois' fiscal future.
Past Due: Illinois Budget Fail is a commitment by NPR Illinois to cover the historic Illinois budget impasse and to the explain the impact that continues to build as time passes without a budget. NPR Illinois reporters will investigate how Illinois is, and will be, affected by the uncertainty. When there is resolution, we'll analyze if it's sufficient in leading the state back to fiscal health or whether it pushes tough choices off to another day.
