Human Service

Illinois Partners for Human Service released a report Tuesday on the economic impact of the industry in parts of southern Illinois.

The study evaluates the impact of 30 human service organizations in Senate Districts 58 and 59.

The Illinois Senate has voted to override Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of legislation that would raise the pay for home-care workers.

Senators then approved new legislation to allow disabled clients in the home-services program to choose their helpers even if overtime pay is necessary.
