‘Stopgap’ social service bill likely to stop on Rauner’s desk

Author: Editor

A stopgap appropriations bill to immediately fund social services agencies will likely sit idle on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk.

The measure, approved by both the Illinois House and Senate on Thursday would have authorized spending about $450 million from a human services fund, and another $250 million from special funds to be spent on items such as foreclosure prevention, and affordable housing.

Will County public health programs in jeopardy

Author: Editor

Grappling with severe depression, Robert Talkie said he first walked into the Will County Health Department 15 years ago in need of mental health services.

On Monday, he spoke out against the May 27 suspension of those state-funded programs during a news conference in Joliet that included elected officials, mental health advocates and county employees.

Talkie urged Illinois lawmakers to pass a budget, and for Will County officials to come up with a temporary solution to possibly prevent some of the slated 53 layoffs. More than 52,000 clients are estimated to be affected by program suspensions.

WILL COUNTY TO CUT HEALTH SERVICES DUE TO STATE BUDGET IMPASSE

Author: Editor
Some Will County health programs could see deep cuts later this month due to the state budget impasse by lawmakers in Springfield.

On Monday, local authorities and healthcare professionals called on the county and state to step forward and help save those programs.

The Will County Health Department is the lead provider of mental health services in the county. The agency provides psychiatric services to about 1,500 adults. However, as of next month, those services may be gone because the state owes the county over$2 million in unpaid bills.
