State agriculture department would receive $32.7M for capital projects under Rauner budget
Less than 0.5 percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Department of Agriculture projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes $32.7 million for the department.
Funding sources include $2.6 million from the agriculture premium fund and $30.2 million from the capital development fund.
The Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability analysis lists Gov. Bruce Rauner's funding priorities and analyzes how it would affect the state's long-term debt. Rauner included $7.8 billion for capital projects for 23 agencies.
