SLN Policy Advocacy-Related on 6/23/2009: IL Update: Arc and S.O.S. Save Our Services

There had been a flurry of emails going on the budget cuts in IL.
These have very real implications and we should watch this closely.
There are sibs on this list who have been pretty actively involved in
getting the word out.
