The Illinois Senate returned to the Capitol on Monday and State Senator Kyle McCarter took to social media to warn folks about something he says is disturbing that could be happening. Senator McCarter took to Facebook Live to raise the alarm about a state budget proposal, the Grand Bargain Two, with billions of dollars in new and higher taxes, according to McCarter. And, McCarter says this plan appears to be gaining momentum.
The state of Illinois has been operating without a full year budget for nearly 2 years. A new deadline for passing a budget it looking in just 15 days.
