The TeleForum discussion was with Illinois State Senator Chapin Rose. The topic of discussion was on jobs and the economy. Additional discussion was on Social service programs and the teacher pension fund. Grants that pay for programs such as funerals and burials of public-assistance recipients, smoking cessation, teen programs, autism and HIV and AIDS programs were suspended in early April. Providers strenuously opposed the cuts, which they said would have a devastating impact on their ability to provide important services. In response, Senate lawmakers agreed to give Gov. Rauner the authority to restore these funds. Produced by iConstituent.
