Lawmakers Want To Add Another Illinois School To Big Ten


Some Illinois lawmakers want to get involved in deciding which schools should be part of the Big Ten. 

 

Republican senators Matt Murphy and Michael Connolly have a bill to create a commission aimed at getting another Illinois university into the elite conference.  They say they want to provide another Illinois option for students who don’t get into the state’s current Big Ten schools… the University of Illinois or Northwestern University. 

 

It’s not clear what authority the commission would have… since membership in the Big Ten is up to the conference, not the legislature.
