opioids 103018DEERFIELD – Today, State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) and leading organizations from across Illinois and Lake County launched a new statewide initiative to address the worsening opioid epidemic.

The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) of Illinois will focus on improving prevention, treatment and recovery strategies to help save the lives of Illinoisans. The new alliance is made up of more than 20 health care, law enforcement, veteran, community and drug prevention organizations committed to finding solutions to the opioid crisis.

The opioid epidemic is the greatest public health crisis facing our state, and it is not slowing down,” Morrison said. “Opioid dependence can develop quickly and has devastating effects. A considerate and holistic approach is necessary to help address this crisis, and that is where RALI comes in.”

MorrisonCommitteeDEERFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) is joining regional officials in hosting a public meeting to discuss some of the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Foxconn Technology Company Plant in Racine.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Heritage Park Center, located at 100 Community Boulevard in Wheeling.

“Business development and regional job creation is important, but also requires a keen eye towards environmental protection,” Morrison said. “Lake and Cook County residents deserve to have all the information available and should know that the environmental impact of the Foxconn development won’t end at the Wisconsin border.”

In their effort to establish a U.S. manufacturing presence, Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology chose Racine County, Wisconsin to locate and build their large plan.  Last year, the incentive package the Wisconsin General Assembly gave to the company included the ability to discharge dredged materials and fill natural wetlands without a permit.
