With two months remaining in the current budget year ... Governor Bruce Rauner says Illinois has run out of cash.
He's pushing for a two-year spending plan.
"I'm recommending we do a budget that's for 2016 and 2017. Frankly, we're out of money for 2016. There's nothing that we can do really productive for 2016. We should get a grand bargain for both years, and do the right thing for the long term,” Rauner said.
Rauner -- a Republican -- has held out on a complete budget … as he presses for Democrats to adopt to an agenda THEY say will harm the middle class.
