The Illinois Budget

As we discussed at the meeting this week, legislators in Springfield overrode the Governor’s veto, which finally gave the state a budget after 2 years.  These legislators fought against the Governor’s slash and burn tactics, and acted in the best interests of the citizens of Illinois to keep social service programs running, and infrastructure projects going too.  Many of them will face Rauner-funded primary opponents because of it.  Please call your legislator to thank him or her for their vote (all city legislators voted to pass the budget).  They need to know they will be supported in their efforts to stand up to our failure of a Governor.

Below is a link to type in your address and find the contact info for your State Representative and State Legislator.  It is temporarily offline this morning but should return soon.  Every member should get to know their legislators personally, and make your voices heard.
