Lieutenant Governor Wants Affordable College In Illinois

Making college more affordable is the objective of a package of recommendations from Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon. Simon says high college costs are the biggest obstacles keeping young people from completing their degree.


She’s proposing a series of what she calls “game-changing” reforms that include letting students enroll simultaneously in community colleges and universities paying the lower community college rate while still racking up university credits. Simon also recommends exploring income tax waivers for students who agree to live and work in Illinois after receiving their college degree.
