Students: Rauner’s budget impasse is bad for colleges’ futures - Associated Press

Bruce Rauner delivers the yearly Budget Address Wednesday, February 17, 2016. This address comes amid the current budget stalemate that's been brewing for more than half of a year. Students at two dozen Illinois colleges have penned an open letter to Gov. Bruce Rauner and lawmakers about the 10-month stalemate on a state budget. The letter singles out the Republican governor for saying he wants a separate piece of legislation to fund elementary and secondary education for the coming year. The letter says that initiative would be undermined if better-prepared high school graduates “leave the state for college because their preferred in-state college has either closed, is in serious financial jeopardy, or has fallen in educational ranking due to lack of state funding.” http://wqad.com/2016/04/09/students-rauners-budget-impasse-is-bad-for-colleges-futures/
