Illinois legislative working groups are reportedly making progress on a stopgap budget plan for the state.
Lawmakers plan to meet again Thursday and are looking to have a budget plan ready to present to the legislative leaders shortly thereafter, according to a report from Fox Illinois.
Working group members say a few items of the stopgap budget plan still need to be worked on by the legislative leaders.
The plan, which would allow government operations to continue through the end of the year, reportedly piggybacks off Gov. Bruce Rauner's stopgap budget proposal.
Illinois has gone nearly a year without a full budget. The regular legislative session ended May 31 without a budget agreement or a spending plan for K-12 education.
