The Illinois legislature is now in the final stretch of the spring session, which will run through May 31. Yes, that does mean they will be working in the Capitol Saturday, Sunday and Monday. There are still many bills that need to be voted on, plus of course everyone is working on the state budget. Senate Bill 2038, which would provide some emergency funding for many human services providers, is on the Governor’s desk. We need that money, and we need your help. Call Governor Rauner’s office at 217-782-0244 to ask him to sign Senate Bill 2038.
In fact, we’d like you to call Governor Rauner every day until a budget solution appears. That’s right: every day. Remember you can also keep contacting your legislators (every day) to remind them how important a budget is to you and your community. Peoples’ lives and jobs depend on our human services network across the state.
