CHICAGO -- Groups servicing children, the mentally ill, the disabled and the homeless pleaded with Illinois lawmakers Monday to spare them from budget cuts.

At the Bilandic Building in Chicago Monday,  representatives from 10 organizations testified before the Illinois Senate Appropriations Committee that the cuts would hurt their ability to help the state's most vulnerable segments of society.

Gov. Bruce Rauner says the cuts are needed to help pull the state out of the red.
