Republicans feel left out of Senate budget proposal

News
Republicans in the Illinois State Senate say they’re being left out of a new budget designed by Democrats. 
 
The 37-billion-dollar spending plan would cut almost all state programs by 5%. 
 
The plan would also add more than $300 million dollars to primary education. 
 
The Senate also voted on a tax increase Tuesday that would raise the personal income tax rate to 4.95%.
It would also extend the state sales tax to services like laundry, dry cleaning and storage units. 
 
The bill would also remove taxes on car maintenance, home repairs and landscape.
 
Only Democrats voted in favor of these changes.
