Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code. Creates the
Medicaid-Equivalent Medical Assistance program to provide State funded
medical assistance which is the equivalent of Medicaid for noncitizens
who are legal permanent residents or who are permanently residing in
the United States under color of law and all noncitizens under age 21.
Creates the Hunger Prevention Program. Provides State-funded food
stamp benefits to noncitizens who are lawfully admitted for permanent
residence and noncitizens who are permanently residing in the United

States. Effective immediately.
