MartinezBudgetState Senator Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago 20th) issued the following statement after hearing the governor’s budget address:

Through good economic times and bad, it is my responsibility as an elected official to remain focused on the needs of my community. We have learned that, unless we find some solution to this year’s $2.4 billion shortfall, unacceptable reductions will be made in funding for public education and crime prevention programs that keep our neighborhoods safe. The budget crisis also threatens to undo the significant progress Illinois has made in health care, including a positive shift toward community-based, not institution-based, treatment of mental illness.


MartinezMedicalEpilepsyState Senator Iris Y. Martinez (D-Chicago 20th) moved forward today with legislation allowing individuals with seizure disorders, including epilepsy, to take a derivative of medical cannabis called CBD. After hearing testimony from a family physician and parents of children suffering from seizure disorders, the Senate Public Health Committee unanimously advanced Senate Bill 2636 to the full Senate.
