State to Restore $26 million in human services funds

Rep. Cavaletto welcomes Gov. Rauner to the House Floor.
State Representative John Cavaletto (R-Salem) announced today that Governor Rauner will restore $26 million in cuts made earlier this month based on the revised estimate from the Commission on Government Forecasting & Accountability (CoGFA) that show the state anticipating $300 - $500 million in extra one-time revenue for the current fiscal year.  

“This is very good news and I applaud the Governor’s decision to restore these critically important funds,” said Rep. Cavaletto, Minority Spokesperson on the House Special Needs Services Committee.

“This will restore funding for autism and epilepsy programs, funding for indigent burials and group home loans under the Department of Human Services, as well as restoring funding to wellness programs within the Department of Public Health, to name a few.”
