Possible Closure of JDC And Other Facilities Unresolved

Among the unresolved budget issues facing state lawmakers is the fate of the Jacksonville Developmental Center and other state facilities targeted for closure.


The state Senate passed a budget plan that includes money for JDC, and the House is working on a draft that would also fund operations at the Jacksonville facility.


But there are significant differences between the House and Senate spending plans, and Governor Pat Quinn, who favors closing the facilities, could use his line-item veto to remove the funding.
