Gov. Bruce Rauner's proposed 2016 budget seeks to cut $1.1 million from the Department of Human Services, according to new details on the Republican's fiscal plan released by his administration.
Of that $1.1 million, $419,000 would come from reducing funding for domestic violence shelters, the Associated Press reports. Another $103,000 would be slashed from services for young people experiencing homelessness, and $42,000 would be cut from a psychotropic drug mental health program.
Those and other Rauner budget details were revealed after a House panel convened to discuss the Republican's decision earlier this month to suspend $26 million in grant funds allocated to social services and public health care providers.
