Never before in our history have we had so many opportunities and so many threats. Looming budget cuts in Springfield and Washington D.C. could crush disability and human services. Then we have Governor Quinn’s Rebalancing Initiative that is redesigning the entire disability system in Illinois emphasizing person-centered planing, individual budgets and employment!

We have developed this toolkit for you to use with newly elected legislators who are identified in the toolkit and you can also use it with more seasoned legislator who may need a refresher course on disability issues!
This is a work in progress so you can expect revisions as the legislative session moves forward. Let me know your suggestions for improvement or other issues that need to be included.
