Illinois’ two-year budget impasse is over. The House of Representatives on Thursday overrode the governor's budget veto, giving final approval to a spending plan and tax increase.
After two years of stalemate, more than a dozen Republicans broke with Gov. Bruce Rauner.
They joined Democrats to pass a $5-billion dollar tax increase.
The governor had been holding out for his business-friendly agenda, but some Republicans, like Rep. David Harris, from Arlington Heights, say time’s up.
