Past Due: Budget And State Employee Health Care Update

Sep 23, 2015

Higher education is still not getting funding as the budget impasse drags on. Universities anticipate that cuts will come when a spending plan is finally approved.

As the third month Illinois has gone without a state budget nears its end, some programs have recently gotten funding. Many other are still waiting and starting to feel the pinch. 

There’s also a new development with state employee health coverage. I sat down with WUIS’ Sean Crawford to chat about that and more.
