Illinois Needs a Fully Funded Budget Now

We are approaching August and Illinois is still without a budget. As result, the children, families and communities that depend on human service programs are living in uncertainty and not receiving the care they need. Lawmakers must act now and end this crisis by choosing revenue.

CALL your lawmakers at 1-844-311-CUTS (2887).

Tell them to STOP IGNORING REVENUE SOLUTIONS and pass a fully-funded year-long budget NOW.

We know the solution to this crisis. Lawmakers must pass a fully funded budget with the additional revenues needed to prevent further erosion in services. We cannot wait any longer.

Email your lawmakers to tell them to CHOOSE REVENUE because Illinois families need a year-long, fully funded budget NOW.

We are a proud member of the Responsible Budget Coalition (RBC), a large and diverse coalition of approximately 200 organizations statewide committed to a state budget that chooses revenue over cuts to vital services for families and communities.  Follow the RBC on Twitter (@RespBudgetIL) and like them on Facebook.
