Sullivan Praises State Budget

Macomb, IL – In an interview with Tri States Public Radio, State Senator John Sullivan (D-Rushville) said he believes the state's new spending plan is good for western Illinois. He says the region fared well when the state's fiscal condition is taken into consideration. Sullivan says agriculture and WIU did not sustain any funding cuts. Sullivan says he's frustrated by the continued lack of money for opening the juvenile prison that's been built in Schuyler County. He says other possibilities are being explored for the facility.
