SPRINGFIELD- State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) issued the following statement regarding Gov. Rauner’s Budget Address.

021715CM0990resizeforweb“The University of Illinois is an economic engine – not only for our local economy but for the entire state of Illinois. The governor’s proposed cuts will drastically drive up tuition costs for working families and put the university at a competitive disadvantage with our neighboring schools. During a time when, we should be looking for ways to make college more affordable, the governor is proposing we take away opportunities for our children and community.”
