ECC could lose $5.6 million due to state budget crisis - Sharon Konny, Daily Herald

Elgin Community College could lose $5.6 million in state funding due to the state's budget impasse. The college has imposed a hiring freeze and is restricting travel, and looking for ways to save money to lessen the impact on students. College administrators say they are taking precautionary measures to lessen the impact of the state budget crisis on students. "There will be no disruption or interruption to anything we are doing for the spring semester," said Sharon Konny, ECC vice president of business and finance. The $5.6 million owed by the state makes up a small percentage of the college's $88 million operating budget.
