The Illinois General Assembly failed to pass a budget agreement by the scheduled end of the regular legislative session Tuesday.
Now that Illinois lawmakers missed the deadline, they are expected to go into a "continuous session" to work on the budget. Illinois has been operating without a full state spending plan since July 1.
The Senate approved a spending bill for K-12 education Tuesday evening, which would ensure pubic schools open on time in the fall, but it was shot down in the House by a 24-92 vote.
The bill sought a $900 million increase in school funding, an amount Republicans said was too high. Republicans also raised concerns about the relatively large amount of funding that would be steered specifically to cash-strapped Chicago Public Schools.
Gov. Bruce Rauner, meanwhile, is holding events around the state Wednesday to push for his proposed stopgap budget and the need for a "clean" education funding bill.
House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that state budgeteers would consider Rauner's proposed stopgap budget.
