Kotowski guides senate passage of plan to undo social service cuts
Illinois state Sen. Dan Kotowski (D-Park Ridge) led passage Wednesday of a bipartisan plan to reverse social services cuts recently enacted by Gov. Bruce Rauner and restore funding for autism, epilepsy and substance abuse prevention.
The bill resulted from discussions with the governor and members of both parties.
“These aren’t just numbers on paper; these are cuts that affect real people,” Kotowski said. “I applaud the governor and both parties in our chamber for coming together to find a solution, without borrowing or raising taxes, to take care of children and families.”
