The Illinois Senate voted to override Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of SB2043 on Wednesday. The legislation would give the governor the spending authority to honor his administration’s commitments to the student financial aid program known as the Monetary Award Program.
State Senator Bill Haine (D-Alton) released the following statement:
“I am happy to see that my colleagues in the Senate see MAP grant funding as important as I do,” said Haine. “Making sure MAP grant funding is a priority is making sure our students’ futures are a priority. I hope the legislation receives the same support in the House.”
