SPRINGFIELD – Satisfied by the governor’s proposal for a balanced, fiscally responsible budget that increases funding to make the cost of college more manageable for working families, State Senator Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) released the following statement:

“Increasing the state’s investment in the Monetary Award Program (MAP) while dedicating 15% of the total awards to students wanting to attend a community college, as well as funding a new ‘Illinois Works’ job-training program recognizes the importance of education and vital contributions given by labor and building trades, thus supporting and building the working class.

However, I am concerned at a time when we are searching for solutions to lower property tax bills, there is a possibility this proposed budget won’t fulfill our commitment to properly fund our schools. As budget conversations continue, I will advocate for the state to invest in our children and Metro East communities.”
