Illinois student leaders press governor for budget meeting - Julie Wurth, News-Gazette

Student-body presidents representing 18 Illinois universities and colleges, both public and private, are pressing the governor and legislative leaders for a meeting to discuss the state's budget crisis. "There are thousands of college students who have been heavily affected by the budget impasse within our state. We need clarity on the state of the budget conflict so that we can inform the students, faculty, and families whom we represent, and who are deeply impacted by the decisions made in Springfield," they wrote. The letter was sent Friday to Gov. Bruce Rauner, House Speaker Michael Madigan and Minority Leader Jim Durkin, Senate President John Cullerton and Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno.
