Advocates for Disabled Hail State's Decision to Close 2 Institutions
See this report by that title. It begins:
Gov. Quinn says budget problems leave him no choice and he’ll have to close two living centers that care for people with disabilities.
But many living with disabilities say they want them closed, CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports.
Many disabled people — and advocates in that community — call developmental centers institutions that needlessly segregate the disabled from the rest of society. They say shutting them down would change that and save the struggling state a lot of money, too.
