State corrections department would receive $31M for capital projects under Rauner budget
Less than half of 1 percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Department of Corrections projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes $31 million for the department.
The projects would be funded with capital development money through the state's Capital Development Board.
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.
