Nearly 30 disability advocates from Access Living, including staff and grassroots leaders from our Power to the People coalition, are spending the day today at the State Capitol in Springfield to protect funding for vital disability services in Illinois, including the Home Services Program and funding for Centers for Independent Living. The key to protecting this funding is a long-term revenue fix. The current income tax rate in Illinois is set to expire January 1, 2015. If nothing else happens, that lost revenue will lead to drastic cuts across the board, but especially in Human Services.
Let's give our awesome advocates a big assist! Please complete the action alert below my signature and contact your State Reps and Senators NOW, during veto session, and tell them to do whatever it takes to preserve funding for disability services.
