Senator Paul Schimpf issues statement regarding latest Joint Senate/House Veterans Affairs Committee hearing about legionella at the Illinois Veterans’ Home at Quincy:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – “Today’s hastily scheduled Veteran’s Affairs Committee hearing in Springfield did nothing to advance the important changes we need to make at the Illinois Veterans’ Home at Quincy. Rather, it was designed to serve as nothing more than a press conference orchestrated to score partisan political points. This hearing, on the heels of a ridiculously broad request for documents, does nothing to help us find solutions. Political grandstanding does nothing to restore the public’s trust in our ability to work together. Our veterans and the citizens of Illinois expect us to rise above partisanship to solve this problem.”
– State Senator Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo)
