ILCRA is aware of the FY2015 funding shortage issue facing officials and we are working to verify what is fact and what is conjecture. Dwight O'Keefe, ILCRA's lobbyist, is working with the Conference of Chief Judges' three lobbyists and the Director of Court Services to resolve the matter.
The ILCRA Board of Directors understand many reporters are anxious to take action but we need to make sure we have a full understanding of the facts before implementing a strategy. Your ILCRA Board of Directors has multiple strategies we can proceed with but only after the facts are in.
Verified information and updates will be disseminated through the ILCRA website and through eblasts to our membership.
Please stay tuned for updates.
