Wow, this is a powerful piece. I think the reporter was very fair and did an excellent job of presenting a balanced piece. Joe Bishop who was interviewed made such an impact. He was a former resident at Jacksonville Developmental Center. This is clearly an emotional issue for so many involved. Here is a link to the interview:

I am still getting caught up after a week on the road and a very busy legislative schedule. There are a number of bills we worked on this will that I want you to know about including an effort to make it even harder to close state institutions and the freedom of information bill for non- profits.

Tomorrow, The Arc Board of Directors meets to discuss the proposed state budget, our new Media Campaign, the Family Transition Project, Governor Quinn’s Rebalancing Initiative and the business of The Arc!
