Help Push for a Good State Budget

Illinois State Capitol

With the 2017 legislative session under way, AARP Illinois is urging lawmakers to pass a fully functional budget that helps older residents continue to live independently in their own homes. Among other issues, the state office is fighting for affordable utility rates and supportive services for family caregivers.

AARP Illinois invites members to amplify these efforts by joining its advocacy team. Volunteer training sessions will be scheduled in Chicago and Springfield. Interested? Call Teresa Jones at 217-747-8881 or email her at
