Gov. J.B. Pritzker surpassed 100 bills signed as he put his signature on more than 30 new laws last week. They included a measure to increase penalties on texting drivers who cause great bodily harm, and another to allow certain recipients of food stamps to use them at state-contracted restaurants.
Kassia Poties: When you are homeless having food stamps and eating at a restaurant is much easier than trying to purchase food you can't cook. And before someone talks crap about homelessness, realize that not everyone who ends up homeless is lazy, irresponsible, or uneducated. Everyone is a pay check away from losing everything they have no matter how great you think you have it. I have met lawyers, stock brokers, teachers, widows/widowers, etc. lose everything they have in a blink of an eye. Some of you don't even realize that in your nice gated community that you have neighbors on food stamps barely eating. Learn to stay humble and blessed for what you have and not judge those who have not.
