In FY2006, Illinois faced its fifth consecutive, multi-billion dollar budget deficit.  How Illinois responded to this crisis impacted thousands of families, seniors and businesses, as well as the state's long-term fiscal health. CTBA's Annual Fiscal Symposium was held on January 19, 2005, and explored the current status of Illinois’ finances and what must be done to ensure that Illinois remains competitive in terms of public education and human services delivery, economic development, job creation and overall quality of life for its residents.
