IN ILLINOIS BUDGET CRISIS, NEVER MIND “WINNING;” TRY “GOVERNING” - Rich Miller, Reboot Illinois

There are those who believe strongly that one side or the other is “winning” our latest and perhaps greatest Statehouse impasse in Illinois history. I think it’s too early to judge, and, frankly, I think everyone is going to end up losing here anyway. For instance, the state’s Monetary Award Program can’t distribute money to 125,000 poor college students without an appropriation. As of Friday afternoon, Western Illinois University was planning to inform its students that they would have to replace that state aid with other sources or out of their own pockets. http://www.rebootillinois.com/2015/08/09/editors-picks/richmiller/in-illinois-budget-crisis-never-mind-winning-try-governing/43334/
