Urgent appeal-please contact your lawmaker

ALERT!!!

We have just two days left in the legislative session and there is still no agreement on a budget.  Among those most severely impacted are thousands of students who are blind or visually impaired.  Without state funding, The Illinois Instructional Materials Center (IIMC) at The Chicago Lighthouse, which supplies books and supplies to these students, could cease operations.

Don’t let this happen!  Please contact Gov. Rauner, Comptroller Mendoza, Speaker Madigan, President Cullerton, Senate Minority Leader Rodogno, House Minority Leader Durkin and your own state senator and representative. Tell them to enact a state budget now that guarantees funding for the critical services offered by the IIMC.

Below are links to contacting your elected representatives.
