Senate back in session seeking compromise on budget

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois Senate is back in session Wednesday trying to deliver a compromise budget plan. 

The Senate’s Democratic president and Republican leader negotiated a plan they hoped would break a nearly two-year deadlock over a state spending plan. 

They wanted to get Senate endorsement quickly in January as a statement that they were ready to end the feuding between the Democrats and Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. But the Senate missed two January deadlines to vote and negotiations continue. 

The plan increases the income tax to reduce a multibillion-dollar deficit, and includes a minimum-wage increase and revamps to school and pension funding. It also attempts to satisfy Rauner’s agenda with initiatives such as changes to the workers’ compensation system and a freeze on local property taxes.
