Illinois’ Other Universities Not Impressed With U Of I Ask

(Springfield, IL)  —  Illinois lawmakers aren’t the only ones who are less than thrilled with the University of Illinois’ special budget request.  Illinois’ other universities are also unimpressed.  The U of I wants almost 650-million dollars a year, for five years, outside of the regular budget process.  Eastern Illinois University President David Glassman told lawmakers last week his school will continue to serve Illinois students without a special compact.
