Illinois Governor Rauner details more budget cuts, including student aid, nursing homes - Kurt Erickson, Daily Pantagraph

Gov. Bruce Rauner's effort to patch a big hole in this year's budget includes cutting aid for low-income college students and programs for sexual assault and homeless youth. Documents obtained Thursday by the Lee Enterprises Springfield bureau show the Republican governor's attempts to close a $1.6 billion budget gap will mean reductions to the state's Monetary Award Program, which helps students offset the cost of college tuition. http://www.pantagraph.com/news/state-and-regional/illinois/government-and-politics/rauner-details-more-budget-cuts-including-student-aid-nursing-homes/article_6bea8ab6-4f62-5aa7-a91b-79033665442e.html
