Nothing has gone as planned this week, so here are some links that could be useful throughout the spring session. They provide thinking points about 1) the Illinois GOP, 2) Illinois poverty and 3) Illinois' financial health (and other major policy issues).
1) The House Republican’s new brainstorming Web site
2) The Illinois Poverty Summit’s 2007 report (More information here)
3) The Institute of Government and Public Affairs’ 2007 report (IGPA is a public policy research unit comprised of researchers at the University of Illinois' three campuses.)
