021914 CM 0113csSPRINGFIELD – State agency directors outlined looming across-the-board budget cuts during an Illinois Senate committee hearing Friday. The directors discussed how a 20 percent funding cut would affect each agency and how those cuts could impact government services in Illinois.

State Senator James Clayborne (D-Belleville) reacted to the potential deductions.

“This is simply staggering, if these cuts happen 30,000 college students will lose their MAP grants and 39,000 low-income children won’t receive vital services. That is not acceptable,” Clayborne said.
