Success Stories Project

The Responsible Budget Coalition has started the Success Stories Project which highlights the positive impact state-funded services have had in the communities they serve.

It's time for Governor Rauner and the General Assembly to pass a fully-funded year long budget with adequate revenue to make smart public investments that help Illinoisans thrive.
