Editorial: State budget gives taxpayers a pay cut - Bloomington Pantagraph

Long term, students who attend college out of state often opt to stay outside of Illinois when they begin their careers and families. Why move back to a place whose leaders can't come to an agreement on a budget, who undervalue social service and education funding, and whose lackadaisical attitude turns off the possibility of new business? Even worse, whose actions dissuade current businesses from expanding or staying in Illinois? "It will take years of hard work to reverse the damage that has been done," ISU President Larry Dietz said in a letter to faculty and staff. University of Illinois President Tim Killeen, in a letter to faculty, staff and students, said, "I hope the lessons learned during this long and difficult impasses will help to restore long-term stability."
