    1990s Despite significant steps by the legislature analysis by The Fiscal Futures Project shows a continued significant structural fiscal imbalance The 2011 tax increase and spending caps reduced but did not eliminate the budget gap The phase out of the tax increase scheduled to begin January 1 2015 will leave Illinois with a major structural budget gap that will be painful to eliminate The December 2013 changes in Illinois public pension programs are expected to have only a modest impact on pension spending and will not greatly reduce Illinois fiscal stress Failure to act to reduce the fiscal gap has already had severe negative effects on Illinois including painful budget cuts a large backlog of unpaid bills and a greatly tarnished credit rating Further inaction is likely to lead to even more serious consequences Click here to read a full analysis of Illinois economic condition PDF Recent Content Let s change how we make state budgets Higher education is a smart investment for Illinois The Illinois Budget Policy Toolbox Webinar Series Toolbox Fundamentals The Illinois Budget Policy Toolbox Webinar Series IGPA is teaming up with U of I Extension Local Government Information and Education Network to host monthly webinars on
