As the spring legislative session draws to a close this Friday, May 19, I wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt appreciation for your dedication and the impact you have made thus far. We are deeply grateful for your commitment to advocating for those with disabilities!
However, we need to keep the pressure up! On this final week, we ask that you send one more email message to reinforce the Illinois House and stay prepared for a possible final push for the end of the week.
As we march forward, I urge you to focus on seeking a $4 per hour DSP wage increase. It is very much needed and well-justified with the Guidehouse Rate Study’s recommendation to achieve 150% of minimum wage.
1. Please send an email today or tomorrow to key House members by clicking the button below!
2. As soon as we know when the final FY24 budget proposal will be presented this week, we will let you know information on our final push efforts. Keep an eye out!
We can do this together! Thank you for your continued advocacy. It is truly making a difference.
