Here is some good news after one fantastic Convention!

Senate Bill 2047, Amendment 1 just passed the Senate 55-0. See page 15.

The vote means that Governor Rauner and the Republicans are supporting this bill. Let’s see what happens in the House but it could be a breakthrough in the Capitol. These grants are greatly reduced from their original awards but a good step forward if approved.

The bill includes:

  • The Autism Program – $1,505,000
  • Best Buddies – $342,100
  • Life Span Project – $165,000
  • Dental Grants – $ 345,000
  • Out of State Residential – $175,000
  • Respite Care Services – $3,072,300
  • Epilepsy Services – $726,200
