Harris 063016SPRINGFIELD- The Illinois Senate sent a proposal to the governor’s desk today that would ensure schools will open this fall and provides funding for youth programs. Senate Bill 2047 includes funding for youth employment and after-school programs and funding for a number of much-needed human services.  

State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) released the following statement after the vote:

“If we really care about the direction Illinois is going, we need to continue to put our children first. Education is a fundamental right, and we need to deliver the resources to give our children a bright future. We know there is still work to do, but keeping schools open and providing valuable services that offer positive experiences for our youth should always be considered a worthwhile investment.”
