Senator Tim Bivins says he is “cautiously optimistic” about news that the Governor acted late November 20 to restore funding for human service agencies like Kreider Services in Dixon and Self Help Enterprises in Sterling, and for state parks, including Castle Rock State Park and Lowden State Park in Oregon; and Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park, which runs through Rock Island, Bureau and Henry Counties.

Senator Bivins expressed his “extreme disappointment,” however, that the Governor did not restore funding for state historic sites, like Apple River Fort in Elizabeth (pictured at right), and Grant’s Home in Galena.

 “Although I am very pleased he has restored funding for our state parks and for important human service programs, I am extremely disappointed that he left many of our historic sites high and dry,” Senator Bivins said.
