Sen. Brady's week in review     Send a link to a friend

From Sen. Bill Brady

[JAN. 31, 2004]  

Governor will talk about education Feb. 2 in Bloomington

Next Monday the governor is doing a "fly around" in central Illinois to promote the education reforms he introduced in his State of the State speech Jan. 15. I have invited him to visit Stevenson Elementary School in Bloomington for an all-school assembly. The governor's proposal addresses the creation of a new Department of Education and mirrors legislation that I introduced last year. The new department will cut costs and make the people who set educational policy more accountable to lawmakers and the governor. Although I applaud the governor's intent, I feel that the decisions for other programs proposed in his speech are best left at the local level.

Brady to attend Maternal and Child Health Coalition meeting

I will be attending the South Central Illinois Legislative Luncheon, hosted by the Illinois Maternal and Child Health Coalition, Jan. 30 in Springfield. Speakers will discuss the concerns of coalition members about medical malpractice and the Medicaid program, and I will update members about legislation and programs affecting women's and children's health issues.

State funds announced for Mount Auburn park

The village of Mount Auburn will receive a $27,000 state grant to renovate Village Park on Main Street. Development includes a new pavilion, sand volleyball court and an upgrade of the existing bandstand.

The grants are provided from two sources of funding: Illinois' Open Space Land Acquisition and Development program and the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund program. Both programs, by law, provide funding for local park projects. Communities are reimbursed for up to half the cost of a project.
