Special panel to keep ISU board involved in state budget - Lenore Sobota, Pantagraph

A special committee has been formed by the head of the Illinois State University Board of Trustees as the university faces what he called an “alarming” budget proposal. Chairman Rocky Donahue announced formation of the committee at Friday morning's board meeting, where the budget was a big topic of conversation. The State Affairs committee will make sure the board stays more closely involved in and informed about the state budget situation, he said. After the meeting, Donahue said he might call a special meeting of the board in April rather than wait for the board's next regularly scheduled meeting on May 8. It's a further sign of the intention of Donahue and the board to be more involved in the budget process — a change that was signaled with a special work session last September that focused on the budget.
