Rally for Funding Illinois Colleges and Universities

From the State Capitol:  With hundreds of millions of dollars owed to colleges and universities across Illinois, lawmakers and Democrat candidates for Governor, JB Pritzker and Sen Dan Biss, speak at a rally on the Capitol grounds.

The lack of a state budget, has resulted in a bill backlog of over $13.5 billion, which grows by millions of dollars daily.  And as we see in this rally, the lack of a budget is going to be a key issue in the 2018 race for governor.
