The Arc’s Independent Living Goals bill SB 1550 passed out of the House and is on its way to the Governor! We had some school administrators groups oppose the bill stating that it was an unfunded mandate. Special thanks for the leadership of our Chief Sponsor Ron Sandack in the Illinois House of Representatives.An Anti Closure Resolution HR 273 is being heard this morning by the House Appropriations Human Services Committee. The Chief Sponsor is Rep Meier where the state institution Murray is. We are activity opposing this bad resolution.

The proposed new state budget is sitting on the floor of the Senate awaiting a vote.
