Some Senate members not ready to vote on budget

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois Senate is putting the brakes on a compromise budget plan but a key Democrat says there could still be a floor vote this week.

Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Don Harmon says some members weren’t ready to vote on the massive proposal designed to break a nearly two-year budget deadlock with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

The plan comprises 13 pieces of legislation, including an income-tax increase, property-tax freeze and cost-saving overhaul of the state pension system.

Harmon says leaders still hope to have floor votes on Wednesday. Lemont Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (ruh-DOHN’-yoh) set a Feb. 1 deadline for Senate action.

Republican state Sen. Chris Nybo (NYE’-boh) of Elmhurst called the package “fluid” and says it still needs discussion and negotiation.
