Sun-Times: "Chicago has a $519.7 million budget shortfall in 2010"

Progress Illinois: "As we recently pointed out, a document released by the city last month shows that Daley’s 150-plus TIF districts ended 2008 with $1 billion in aggregate unspent funds."

Acronym you won't find in either the Sun-Times's or the Trib's articles on the 2010 shortfall: TIF.
