Sen. Cullerton appointed to Veteran Suicide Task Force
State Sen. Tom Cullerton (D-IL) has been selected to serve on the Illinois Veteran Suicide Task Force.
“Our veterans have risked their lives and made sacrifices to protect our freedoms and democracy,” Cullerton said. “When they return home, it’s our duty to find ways to look out for them.”
The Illinois Veteran Suicide Task Force was formed by a measure Cullerton led in 2014. The task force will investigate the causes of veteran suicide, form policy recommendations and report back to the General Assembly.
The task force must report on their findings to the General Assembly by Dec. 31, 2016.
