Illinois House to consider temporary state budget Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -

The Illinois House is scheduled to take another run at a one-month state spending plan when lawmakers return to Springfield.
    
A committee hearing is set for Wednesday on legislation from the Senate which would approve spending $2.3 billion to get the state through July while a long-term fiscal blueprint remains in the air.
    
The 2016 budget year began July 1 without an agreed-upon plan because of legislative Democrats' dispute with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.
    
The House voted on a similar plan last week but it fell four votes short.
    
Rauner has indicated he'd veto a short-term budget.
    
A Cook County court ruled Tuesday that without a budget, paychecks to workers cannot be cut after mid-July.
    
The House plans to be in session Thursday too. The Senate returns next week.
