Illinois Governor Rauner Criticizes Spending of Public Universities Amid Budget Impasse - AP

Public universities have responded to Gov. Bruce Rauner's criticism of their spending habits. The Republican governor's deputy chief of staff sent a memo to legislators Wednesday criticizing hefty tuition hikes over the decade and wasteful spending on administration and executive compensation. But the memo didn't mention steep declines in state funding during the same period. University of Illinois President Timothy Killeen says the school has taken steps since Rauner assumed office, like putting a freeze on hiring and on tuition for instate students.
