Budget deadlock blocks flood aid for Des Plaines residents

The state budget deadlock is blocking promised flooding assistance for some suburban families who live near the Des Plaines River.

Many of those residents live in the often-flooded area along Big Bend Drive. Residents counting on that buyout money to relocate will now have to wait.
