A bit of good news

This went out on the Faculty Senate list this morning:

For your information:

House Bill 5531, to eliminate the 50-percent tuition waiver for children of university personnel, was overwhelmingly defeated Thursday evening in the Illinois House.

William Recktenwald
President, Faculty Senate

Here's a brief press account, which credits downstate Republicans with killing the bill. The plan's sponsor, Luis Arroyo, is a democrat from Chicago.

  1. A welcome, even if transient, relief. Thanks to all, including Bost and Poshard, who helped kill this bill. I suspect this will continue to be an annual struggle, however.


I will review and post comments as quickly as I can. Comments that are substantive and not vicious will be posted promptly, including critical ones. "Substantive" here means that your comment needs to be more than a simple expression of approval or disapproval. "Vicious" refers to personal attacks, vile rhetoric, and anything else I end up deeming too nasty to post.
