Finke: Officials Admit IL has a financial problem, but few have solutions

“Nag, nag, nag,” went the reaction in some quarters to last week’s stinging report on Illinois from the State Budget Crisis Task Force. Illinoisans hardly needed reminding that their state is in serious financial trouble, said the report’s critics. But as Statehouse reporter Doug Finke notes, “maybe there’s some value on the nag factor, reminding people the problem is still there.” Finke continues: “You’d be hard pressed to find a candidate for state office who doesn’t acknowledge that the state has severe financial problems. You’d probably be equally hard pressed to find a candidate willing to spell out in detail how those problems should be solved.”
