Bryant applauds passage of rape crisis center funding
Rep. Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) cheered the unanimous House passage of a measure to provide funding to rape crisis centers in Illinois.
“When the legislature passed the stopgap budget last June, funding for rape crisis centers in Illinois was inadvertently left out,” Bryant said in a release. “By working together with my colleagues, we reached an agreement to correct this error.”
House Bill 3259 will help women in Bryant’s district and throughout the state, she said in the release.
“Upon the Governor’s signature, HB 3259 will ensure that the Carbondale Women’s Center will receive necessary funding in order to provide critical services for victims of sexual assault and other violent domestic crimes and abuses,” Bryant said. “The unanimous passage of this legislation was a result of bipartisan cooperation. If we can continue this spirit of bipartisan input and cooperation we will be able to move forward to offer the citizens of Illinois a truly balanced, full-year budget.”
