“Balancing their budget” where any component of that includes borrowing is not balanced. Also the capital projects are a ruse to make the borrowing legal. That capital money will still go to operating expense with long term notes. The bond markets just want the rates, everyone sees its a train wreck, but bond holders know they have constitutional protections in Illinois.
