SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – "I’m grateful to Director Nirav Shah, Director Erica Jeffries, and Acting Director Amy Romano for providing answers again today about the Illinois Veterans’ Home at Quincy. For the most part, today's hearing focused on finding solutions, rather than scoring political points. I’m encouraged by the announcement that the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs will provide a plan for dealing with the Legionella threat to the General Assembly by March 31, 2018."
– State Senator Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo)
