Kaskaskia College Board Explains Property Tax Rate Increase - Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The Executive Director of the Illinois Community College Trustees Association Mike Monaghan was at the meeting to share the impact of the budget impasse on community colleges. He said they have not received any state funds since June. Kaskaskia College is currently due $4.3-million dollars or about a third of its budget. Monaghan is also concerned about a negative impact on enrollment as a result of a decrease in financial aide. 135,000 college students are not receiving financial aid in the form of MAP grants due to the budget impasse.
