    The state's largest union isn't keeping quiet about the governor's proposed budget cuts. In tonight's Budget Battle Report, AFSCME just launched the "No Quinn Cuts" campaign.
    It's encouraging people to sign this online petition. Union members hope it'll get the General Assembly's attention. They'll have the final say on the state's budget.
    The governor wants to make some major changes, cutting more than 2,000 jobs plus closing and consolidating 59 state facilities. Governor Quinn's office responded tough decisions need to be made to address the state's budget challenges.
