SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D – Deerfield) released the following statement this afternoon after attending the governor’s State of the State address in Springfield:

“Our human service providers took the brunt of Illinois’ protracted budget impasse, causing many providers to simply bleed out and close their doors. The damage that has been done will not be mitigated overnight, and will take years, at best, to recover.

“I didn’t seem to hear any sense of urgency today from the governor in relation to the condition of our human service network. I am concerned the governor will further cut already decimated programs, and I look forward to the governor’s budget address when details of how he plans to balance the budget and invest in our social services are made public.”
