A state coalition of churches, community-based organizations, and social service groups marched outside the Thompson Center Wednesday morning in a protest over the state budget stalemate. The group calling itself the Illinois Legislative Voter Coalition is urging lawmakers to pass a state budget.

Tuesday, Governor Blagojevich promised major cuts in the budget that lawmakers sent to him if they don't come up with new ways to generate money.
