Editorial: Rauner blames schools, still no budget - the Daily Eastern

Gov. Bruce Rauner has said public Illinois universities need to be more accountable in their spending. This is ironic considering Rauner has failed to pass a state budget as Illinois is nearing almost seven full months without a budget. More recently, Rauner’s office sent out a memo explaining the spending policies of some Illinois universities, including Eastern. The memo discusses university spending that occurred years ago, and while Rauner blames the university, he has failed to produce any solution to help the situation aside from failing to have a state budget. In fact, the memo did not even come from Rauner himself. He chose to speak through a surrogate, in this case, the surrogate ended up being Richard Goldberg, the deputy chief of staff.
