A stopgap appropriations bill to immediately fund social services agencies will likely sit idle on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk.
The measure, approved by both the Illinois House and Senate on Thursday would have authorized spending about $450 million from a human services fund, and another $250 million from special funds to be spent on items such as foreclosure prevention, and affordable housing.

Grappling with severe depression, Robert Talkie said he first walked into the Will County Health Department 15 years ago in need of mental health services.
On Monday, he spoke out against the May 27 suspension of those state-funded programs during a news conference in Joliet that included elected officials, mental health advocates and county employees.
Talkie urged Illinois lawmakers to pass a budget, and for Will County officials to come up with a temporary solution to possibly prevent some of the slated 53 layoffs. More than 52,000 clients are estimated to be affected by program suspensions.
