Illinois AARP Calls for End to State Budget Crisis

Mar 13, 2018

Leaders of the Illinois AARP say Illinois' budget crisis has gone on for too long and say it's time to put an end to the state's fiscal problems.

Illinois AARP President Rosanna Marquez says through their Enough is Enough Campaign, they are educating members and their families about the impact of the budget crisis.

"We have considered it our job to just make our members and their families aware of what the implications are of this long term fiscal instability."

Marquez says the impact goes farther than their members over 50.

She says it is also affecting their children's ability to affordably attend state Universities.
