Human services would receive $4M for capital projects under Rauner budget
Only 0.05 percent of the governor's 2019 capital budget request would fund Illinois Department of Human Services projects, according to a state analysis.
In all, the budget includes $4 million for the department.
All of the project funds would come 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.
