Thousands of Illinois students' funding is in limbo - JUAN PABLO GARCIA, My Suburban Life

Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs and House Republican Leader Jim Durkin stopped by Elmhurst College on Oct. 13 to listen to students affected by the current freeze in state student tuition funding. Students and administrators from Elmhurst College, Dominican University, Triton College and North Central College joined them to urge Gov. Bruce Rauner and the General Assembly to do something to release Monetary Assistance Program grant funding. Because of the disagreement between Democrats and Republicans in the General Assembly over how to resolve the budget crisis, Illinois has been scraping by without a budget. The state is running on emergency money, and although most things are still running, student tuition grant funding has dried up. http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2015/10/14/elmhurst-college-state-treasurer-urge-lawmakers-to-release-funding/apxl1am/
