University leaders talk budget, diversity, background checks - Anna Carrera, WCIA

Leaders at the University of Illinois are looking ahead after a big meeting to start the school year. "We need a state budget," said University President Tim Killeen. "The taxpayers of Illinois, the families of Illinois need a state budget, to support this enterprise." As the new school year starts, the state budget -- or lack thereof -- is a big concern for leaders at the University of Illinois. University leaders say they know they'll have to make cuts, but they still don't know how many or when those will take effect. Killeen is heading back to Springfield on Friday to try to figure it out. Killeen says the university has the potential to help pull the state out of its budget crisis, but in order to do that, they need the money to keep things going.
