Governor Bruce Rauner is expected to address the state of Illinois Tuesday, 24 hours before lawmakers return to work.
Rauner's speech will take place Tuesday night at the old state capitol in Springfield.
It also comes nearly a week before the 2017 fiscal year comes to an end.
A Rauner spokesperson says his speech will focus on unity, and passing a balanced budget to put Illinois on a path to a brighter future.
Illinois has not had a budget since July of 2015.
