Illinois has some of the nation’s top pension debt and decades of irresponsible budget-making. Another session of the General Assembly has come to a close. Were legislators able or willing to make progress in finally addressing these decades-old long-standing issues, or were they once again swept under the rug and put off for future? Is what happens in Illinois a bad lesson for your state’s government?

Please join Adam Schuster, director of budget and tax policy of Illinois Policy Institute for a sober analysis of the state’s budget future, in an always lively and fascinating discussion.
