The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Institute of Government and Public Affairs will use this grant to support the Fiscal Futures Project, which aims to improve the budget process in Illinois. The Institute will conduct objective, broad-based, long-term analyses of budgeting in Illinois, promote this work with policymakers and the media, and work to institutionalize it within the state budgeting process. At a time when policymakers are grappling with pension reform, the upcoming sunset of temporary tax increases, and other fiscal issues, this work will underscore the severity of Illinois’ fiscal situation, and clarify the long-term effects of budgetary choices.
