HunterBudget2014The dual budget plans proposed today by Governor Quinn presented Illinois families with a bleak outlook if the state does not find alternative solutions for avoiding steep budget cuts. State Senator Mattie Hunter (D-Chicago) expressed her concern about struggling families and children in a statement today.

“Every time the state needs to balance the budget, we turn to human services and education. The state has cut $1.2 billion from human services over the past five years,” said Sen. Hunter, Chair of the Illinois Human Services Committee. “It’s time for a responsible alternative. We cannot cut our way out of a $7 billion deficit on the backs of struggling families and children.”
