Illinois Pols Bank on a Congressional Bailout
(From The Washington Free Beacon)
The state’s 2021 budget, now headed to Gov. J. B. Pritzker’s (D.) desk, is written with the expectation that the $3.5 billion the state received under the CARES Act will be freed up for general spending. That would require Congress to change limitations on those funds, which currently can only be spent on expenses directly related to coronavirus—not general fiscal costs.
