English. http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/7...ntal-patients-in-jail-and-on-the-streets.html I'm still amazed at the short-sightedness of this philosophy. Far more cost-effective to treat mental illness than to wait for the untreated mentally ill to commit crimes - and far more humane. I have to wonder where these kinds of cuts are going to stop - eventually there will be no more human services programs left, so will we cut education (not that SDs in IL are getting paid right now anyway)? Prison services? I'm so frustrated that our legislators cannot figure out how to balance a darn budget without harming the folks we *should* be caring for, especially since the *last* place cuts will be made will be in funding for the folks who are running this state into the darn ground (aka the decision makers in the state capitol).
