Act Now – Avoid Drastic Cuts to Services & Programs!
We need you to act now as the fate of Illinois’ state budget will be determined in the next few weeks. In January 2015 the current 5% state income tax will expire creating a fiscal cliff. This will result in massive cuts (nearly $2 billion in cuts) to education funding and vital human services programs if the 5% income tax rate is not extended.
Please contact your state legislators (House and Senate) and let them know that more cuts to education, healthcare, and human services is unacceptable and that the state should raise sufficient revenue to fund our priorities. Find your legislator’s contact information by clicking here.

Thank you and please spread the word!
