Lawmakers will return to Springfield next week to end the impasse that left capital road construction funds in limbo.

Legislators will return to Springfield June 22 to vote on a “clean” capital construction measure that would avert a shutdown of state road projects and other construction programs. On June 16, the Senate President announced that the Senate Democrat Caucus has agreed to advance the capital budget funding stream without $430 million in add-ons they were pushing.

A shutdown of road construction plans could have idled as many as 52,000 workers in Illinois.
