Highlights of the FY 2009 Proposed Budget
After adjusting for inflation many state programs will be cut in FY 2009, including K-12 and higher education, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Children and Family Services and the Department of Natural Resources.
Revenue is forecasted to grow only $448 million, while just covering the inflationary cost of FY 2008 service levels into FY 2009 is over $1.2 billion.
This creates a deficit of $752 million, between revenue costs and service cost growth. Additionally the Illinois Comptroller has found that the state currently owes $3.4 billion in unpaid Medicaid bills and the pension ramp is scheduled to increase by $720 million from FY 2008 to FY 2009.
