Illinois hasn't had a true state budget for a year and five months. Even so, there's some talk of trying to work ahead on a spending plan for the future.
Talk to a university president. The head of a homeless shelter, rape crisis hotline, or other organization that depends on state funding. Even the director of a state agency.
They'll all tell you that one of the most difficult parts of going without a budget for so long, is that it's created tremendous uncertainty.
