MOLINE – Marking Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will visit counselors and educators Tuesday at Family Resources to advocate for legislation that would restore funding to sexual assault prevention agencies.
Senate Bill 3348 would require all strip clubs that permit alcohol to collect a $5-per-patron entry fee, and the revenue would be distributed to community-based sexual assault prevention and response organizations, like Family Resources. Over the past two years, the center has seen their state funding cut by nearly 28 percent.
DATE: Tuesday, April 3
TIME: 10 a.m.
PLACE: Family Resources, 1521 47th Ave., Moline###
