Republicans Continue to Express Frustration Over LaSalle Veterans Home Situation

Republicans are angry about the report from the state about the COIVD-19 outbreak that killed 36 veterans in state-run veterans’ homes.


The report details a lack of direct leadership from the head of the agency to a lack of training for staff. Republican Rep. Dan Swanson says that the state should be double-checking that the rest of the homes are safe places for vets to live.



Pritzker fired Linda Chapa LaVia who headed the IDVA at the time of the outbreak and has now hired a 31 year Navy Veteran, Terry Prince, to lead the agency.
