    New analysis PDF by the Fiscal Futures Project finds no easy fix to Illinois chronic fiscal imbalance Illinois now faces a 9 billion annual deficit that will grow to 14 billion by FY 2026 Years of pay later budgeting has resulted in a massive imbalance between sustainable revenue and spending said Richard Dye co director of the Fiscal Futures Project Like a person in deep credit card debt the state has been spending more than it can afford and is covering the gap by issuing IOUs The report finds that the state s IOUs now total 159 billion more than twice the inflow of revenue in a single year It s a monumental problem that will require a long term fiscal plan that includes tax increases spending cuts and economic growth The report Apocalypse Now The Consequences of Pay Later Budgeting in Illinois examines what it would take to balance the budget The options are limited Bringing back the 2011 tax increase would close only about one half of the gap projected for the next several years The problem cannot be solved with spending cuts alone Because Illinois can t cut debt service or pension payments it would take at least a 20 percent cut of all remaining spending to eliminate the deficit This includes education corrections Medicaid public safety transportation and more Economic growth is also not a cure all an increase in the growth rate of personal income by an extra one half percent every year for 10 years an optimistic scenario would only have a modest effect on the deficit The report concludes Changes in awareness expectations and policy are needed to restore fiscal balance in Illinois Being saddled with paying past years bills means that today Illinoisans must reduce their expectations for the services that they

    The Latest From IGPA Illinois sees greater decrease in uninsured population than rest of nation most surrounding states in first year of ACA implementation The proportion of non elderly i e 64 or younger Illinoisans without health insurance decreased by 2 6 percentage points from 15 7 percent to 13 1 percent The decrease in the uninsured was particularly large for low educated Illinoisans and young adults IGPA Director Chris Mooney talks about the campaign for governor in Illinois Mike Lawrence The compelling challenge of rehabbing Illinois Gov Pat Quinn and Bruce Rauner are having a brawl trash talk and all So it s less likely with every gouge and grunt that either will focus on rescuing Illinois until after the election if then Yet to the bloodied victor in the battle will go the spoils and the toil Christopher Z Mooney Evidence in policymaking no cure all but better than alternative Prisons vastly are overcrowded College tuition is rising fast Roads and bridges are crumbling Public pensions are on the verge of disaster Why is Illinois state government so inept While public problems are inherently difficult to solve Illinois seems to be particularly adrift these days One explanation for this phenomenon is the dearth of valid and reliable evidence used in public policymaking Flash Index remains in narrow one point range for eighth month Growth finally having effect on unemployment The U of I Flash Index rose in September to 106 3 from its 106 0 level in August remaining in the narrow range 106 0 106 8 it has hovered between over the past eight months Readings above 100 mean that the economy is growing IGPA s Don Fullerton on Illinois taxes video A Minute With Brian Gaines on the Scotland referendum IGPA Director Mooney on why evidence

  • Analysis of public opinion poll data shows slip in delegate count for Clinton and Huckabee | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    and Republican Mike Huckabee may be losing delegates despite their front runner status in the Hawkeye state going into the caucuses tonight The analysis conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois Institute of Government and Public Affairs indicates that Senator Clinton has lost 90 delegates since the initial survey last month while Huckabee s delegate count has declined by 150 The researchers led by IGPA Senior Fellow Michael R Cheney use opinion poll data and formulas designed to approximate the complicated rules by which delegates are assigned to candidates after primary voting They analyzed polls in all states voting on or before Feb 5 commonly known as Super Tuesday While public opinion polls in Iowa and New Hampshire have shown positive movement recently for Huckabee and for Democratic Sen Barack Obama the polling in most of the Super Tuesday states has remained constant since the initial analysis was conducted in mid December said Cheney who is co director of IGPA s Center for Technology and Public Policy History shows however that the support is soft in these later states and a strong showing in Iowa and or New Hampshire will see some serious shifting of support in those states he said So the upcoming contests in Iowa and New Hampshire might change significantly the current delegate strength for the candidates The latest analysis indicates that Senator Clinton would have 1 387 of the 2 415 Democratic delegates if the nominating convention were held today Despite the loss of 90 delegates she still holds a substantial lead over Obama who picked up 40 delegates in the latest analysis and John Edwards who gained 44 delegates Sen Joseph Biden picked up the remaining six delegates On the Republican side Rudolph Giuliani gained 68 of the 150 delegates lost by Huckabee since
