Chicago Style Presents: Social Services and the Illinois Budget

Mon, April 24, 2017 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM

Since Governor Rauner took office in 2015, there has been continuing tension between his administration and the Democratically controlled Illinois Legislature centered around budget negotiations. One of the primary sites of partisan gridlock is the issue of how the state plans to pay for social service programs that impact thousands of people in Chicago and across the state. Political and social leaders and organizers at every level of government and service have been affected by the ongoing budget crisis and the uncertainty it brings.

Join the IOP’s Chicago Style Committee as it hosts Illinois State Senator Heather Steans (IL-7) to discuss the Illinois budget crisis as well as the implications of the upcoming gubernatorial election on the landscape of social services in in Chicago and Illinois at large.
