As Governor Rauner and the Legislature continue to debate Illinois’ budget for the coming fiscal year, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is inviting area residents to share their views and learn about the effects of proposed cuts at a Budget Hearing on Monday, June 29 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Oswego East High School in the Community Room, located at 1525 Harvey Road in Oswego.
“The budget cuts proposed by Governor Rauner cuts vital services to children, seniors, and veterans,” Kifowit said. “The most vulnerable members of our society and their caregivers deserve to have a voice during these ongoing budget negotiations.”
Kifowit is organizing a panel of representatives from local non-profits and groups who care for people with developmental disabilities, seniors, and victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. They will discuss the immediate effects of Rauner’s budget cuts and the long term-consequences. Groups attending include Alden of Waterford, Breaking Free, Hope for Tomorrow, Kendall Area Transit, Mutual Ground, and Ray Graham Association.
