LEGISLATIVE REPORT: Marla Fronczak/Royce Blackwell

Illinois – Governor Quinn’s proposed budget was good for funding aging programs in FY 15. However since the temporary income tax is set to expire on January 1, 2015,  IL Dept. on Aging and all other IL programs have been asked to prepare budgets based on this loss of revenue.  This could have a drastic impact on funding programs such as home delivered meals.
