The House just voted on the “Doomsday Budget” and only five legislators voted
to support the “Doomsday Budget.”. Legislators in the House do not want a
“Doomsday Budget” but they also do not want to support the extension of the
income tax!

Looks like legislators will be home for the weekend and return on Monday
afternoon. This is a long way from being over.

Our legislative alert sent out this morning is what you need to react to for today
and next week.

The “Doomsday Budget” would cut community services and ICFDD’s by 18% or
$130 million. That is a 18% rate cut! Illinois is ranked 46th in community
spending. This is not acceptable.

Share our Action Alert with other advocates!
