  • Revenue, spending at midpoint of FY16 | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    brief uses data from the Illinois Office of the Comptroller on spending and revenue as of December 31 2015 to provide a detailed accounting of the budget picture at the mid point of FY16 The data show that as of mid FY16 Illinois had revenue of only about 30 billion or 46 percent of FY15 revenue Based on this data and other analyses the researchers project final revenue for FY16 of about 63 7 billion a decline of 1 9 billion from FY15 The scheduled phase out of the temporary income tax rate increase has left the state with significantly less money this fiscal year That s a problem in itself said David Merriman co director of the Fiscal Futures Project But the autopilot spending caused by the budget stalemate means that the state is allocating expenditures for some categories at rates similar to FY15 while others are receiving almost nothing The report provides a data table that details allocations to various departments and agencies It compares the amount allocated by mid FY16 to total spending in each category in FY15 to provide a ratio expressed as a percentage of FY15 spending For example spending for K 12 education funded by an appropriations bill is consistent with last year at 3 99 billion or 45 percent of FY15 spending The ratios range from a low of less than 1 percent state employee health care to a high of 55 percent Environmental Protection Agency Other areas with particularly low mid FY16 rates of expenditures include university education 1 percent the Illinois Community College Board 1 percent and the Capital Development Board 3 percent Overall the state s lack of a budget will only add to the imbalance between revenue and spending resulting in a bad deficit made worse The state had
