120715CM0773RTCHAMPAIGN- State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) issued the following statement in regard to Gov. Rauner’s veto of Senate Bill 2043 (MAP grant funding):

“Today, the governor has let down the thousands of students relying on need-based financial assistance at our state’s community colleges and universities. This isn’t a partisan issue. It’s about investing in students at Danville Area Community College, the University of Illinois and Parkland College to grow our state’s economy.”
