COLLINSVILLE, IL (KTVI) - Midnight was the deadline for Illinois lawmakers to reach a deal on a new state budget. There is no agreement in place and the state is facing a government shutdown.
Governor Bruce Rauner and democratic lawmakers broke off their talks on a new state budget deal. What we don't know, is what form the shutdown will take when state offices are scheduled to open Wednesday.
Legislative leaders came up with a budget but it was $4 billion out of balance. As a result, it was vetoes by Rauner. State agency officials spelled out their options before the state house Tuesday.
Despite the state being left without a way to pay its bills, the governor is urging state employees to show up for work, and he's promising they'll be paid on time.
Some things won't change. State parks will stay open, prisons will operate as normal and sate police will stay on the job.
