Legislative Scholarships A Step Closer To Being Eliminated

The Illinois General Assembly is moving closer to ending one of their biggest perks… the ability to hand out tuition waivers to constituents. 


A bill that would end the controversial legislative scholarship program has moved out of a Senate subcommittee, with the backing of Senate President John Cullerton.  Cullerton has defended the scholarships in the past, but recent allegations of abuse have spurred calls to end the program altogether. 


The bill to eliminate the legislative tuition waivers has already cleared the House… if the Senate also approves the bill, Governor Pat Quinn is expected to sign it.
