IL Mental Health, Addiction Treatment Advocates Want “Quick, Responsible” Budget Resolution

(Springfield, IL) – Illinois Association for Behavioral Health CEO Sara Moscato Howe today issued a statement calling on Governor Bruce Rauner and the four legislative leaders to act “quickly and responsibly” in order to produce a full Fiscal Year 2017 state budget.

“With the FY 2017 stop gap budget expiring at the end of December, the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health urges both the legislative leaders and the governor to approve quickly and responsibly a full-year state budget that reverses the budget cuts that have been imposed on mental health care and addiction prevention and treatment in recent years,” Howe said.
