House and Senate send final education budget to Governor

The Illinois House and Senate have approved and sent to the Governor an education budget for FY 2004 totaling $6.56 billion in General Funds - an increase of $330 million over FY 2003. Until the Governor signs the appropriation bill, however, the numbers are subject to his line item veto authority.
