Governor Quinn Restores Some Funding To Probation

Today, Governor Quinn restored $16 billion in funding that had previously been cut from state probation departments. The state legislature cut funding to the Illinois Supreme Court by 56 percent. As a result, the Supreme Court cut funding to probation departments throughout the state to only 65 percent of what they received last year. The funding cuts led to claims that public safety would be jeopardized by cuts to the probation departments. Quinn's restoration of funding restores the Supreme Court's funding to about 82% of what it received last year.
