NPR Illinois and WDCB hosted an Illinois Issues Forum on the state budget and how it has impacted DuPage County on May 23.
A panel of experts discussed the implications of Illinois’ ongoing budget impasse featuring:
- Angela Adkins, Executive Director, NAMI DuPage (National Alliance on Mental Illness)
- Julie Yurko, CEO, Northern Illinois Food Bank
- Kirk Dillard, Chairman, Regional Transportation Authority
Moderator: Brian O'Keefe, WDCB News Director
The panelists discussed the sometimes hidden ways the lack of a state spending plan is hurting Illinois. Dillard says it might not seem like it now … but these issues have the potential to affect all residents.
