===Budget, 2011===
 +
 +
Both Republican and Democrat Senators were concerned that they didn't have enough time to before voting up or down the $1.2 billion in cuts to Gov. [[Pat Quinn]]’s introduced $35.4 billion budget.
 +
 +
As the Senate President, Sen. [[John Cullerton]] sought this vote in a time crunch that made many senators uncomfortable.
 +
 +
“When we make these cuts they are real, and they affect real people,” Sen. [[Mike Jacobs, Illinois Senator|Mike Jacobs]] said. “So we do have to be careful and I do agree with my colleague Senator (William) Delgado that we should go through this list slowly, completely and without an eye on which constituent gets help and what constituent gets hurt, but based on numbers.”
 +
 +
Sen. [[Matt Murphy]] said he too was concerned about the small time frame and reiterated his concern that reductions in spending as introduced don’t go far enough.
 +
 +
“I don’t know that that gets us to a point where the tax increase goes away. I think the numbers, the way they run out, will not allow the tax increase to go away if we’re only at 1.2 (billion dollars),” Murphy said.
 +
 +
The state increased the personal and corporate income taxes earlier this year by 67 percent and 45.9 percent, respectively. The tax increases will expire in four years unless the General Assembly  votes to extend them.<ref>[http://illinois.statehousenewsonline.com/5918/senators-unhappy-with-proposed-budget-2/ "Senators unhappy with proposed budget," ''Illinois Statehouse News'', May 3, 2011]</ref>
