JULY 1, 2015, BY  AND 
CHICAGO — The new fiscal year kicks off today and the state of Illinois still has no approved budget.

Lawmakers are pitching a temporary one month spending plan today, but the governor’s office already is calling it “unconstitutional.”

Illinois now faces a partial government shutdown after Governor Rauner and democratic lawmakers broke off spending talks.

At the Thompson Center in Chicago, protesters are demanding lawmakers and the governor put citizens before politics.

They are worried social services will suffer the most in a budget standoff.
