State of Illinois and their financial issues – InfoGraphic

Pulled this from the Chicago Tribune.  This information graphic points out the financial issues the state of Illinois is in.  What really needs to be added to this graphic is a percent of budget.  Then you would have a clear pictures of the budget and the shortfall is.  When you look at the proposed cut in education, it is a big number, but what is it as a percent of the total budget. Makes things look misleading…
