Illinois Governor Saving the Priorities

Quinn has already promised one-billion dollars in cuts. Lawmakers have given him the authority to cut another billion plus shift money around in the budget to use it as he sees fit. Quinn says priorities would be "core functions" but he didn't elaborate on those.
