HIGHER EDUCATION WILL BE GETTING A LITTLE RELIEF…AND LAWMAKERS SAY SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE TO HELP HUMAN SERVICE PROGRAMS AS WELL.

THE SOCIAL SERVICE PROGRAMS THAT SERVE THE NEEDIEST OF ILLINOISANS HAVE TAKEN A BIG HIT DURING THE BUDGET IMPASSE…AND NEED SOME SORT OF A REPRIEVE SAYS CHICAGO HEIGHTS SENATOR TOI (toy) HUTCHINSON.

COLLEGES GOT A BIT OF A REPRIEVE…AND NOW IT’S SOCIAL SERVICES’ TURN SAYS SENATOR KIMBERLY LIGHTFORD OF WESTCHESTER. SHE NOTES THE SENATE OKAYED A 450 MILLION DOLLAR FUNDING BILL TO HELP KEEP PROGRAMS RUNNING UNTIL A FULL BUDGET IS PASSED.
