State EPA would receive $1.16B for capital projects under Rauner budget
Just under 15 percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Environmental Protection Agency projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes $1.16 billion for Illinois EPA.
Funding sources include $1.14 billion from the water revolving fund. The Build Illinois Bond Fund would supply an additional $16 million.
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.
