Bennett served on a bipartisan higher education working group which proposed the MAP grant reform, among a number of measures to strengthen higher education.

“I’ve always believed that if we care about the future of our state, we must invest in its next generation and protect our universities and colleges,” Bennett said. “This new law is a step in the right direction to reverse the decline in Illinois higher education and help keep the best and the brightest in our state.”

The governor signed the law today, and it takes effect immediately.
