When charities receive monies from the government, the risk that legislators will not agree on a budget can have critical ramifications; Catholic Charities of Illinois is a case in point.

"The state budget stalemate has caused social service agencies that rely on taxpayer money to care for low-income, the needy and senior populations to cutback services, and in some instances, close down completely.

"Monsignor Michael Boland, the head of Catholic Charities, the state's largest social service agency, now says that organization is in crisis mode and care for hundreds of thousands of people is in jeopardy without a budget agreement."--Paris Schutz, Chicago Tonight
