Emergency Management would receive $7M for capital projects under Rauner budget
Less than a tenth of 1 percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Emergency Management Agency projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes $7 million for the agency.
All the funds for the projects come from the Build Illinois Bond 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.
