Disability advocates: budget cuts are costly

Budget cuts proposed by Governor Quinn will devastate services allowing people with disabilities to live in community-based settings and in their own homes, forcing many out of work and into nursing homes — thus costing the state more than the cuts will save, according to Access Living.

People with all types of disabilities will rally against the cuts (prior to an Illinois Senate Human Services Committee hearing), Thursday, February 24, 9 a.m. at the State of Illinois building at Dearborn and Randolph.
