CHICAGO — The Illinois Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear Illinois’ appeal of a lower court decision invalidating the state’s $31 billion capital budget and the funding streams that support it.

The high court also agreed to an accelerated review and extended a stay against enforcement of the lower court decision until the case is resolved. Initial briefs are due March 1, with final responses due in early May. A date for oral arguments has not yet been set.
