On the heels of news reports highlighting alleged abuses of the state’s legislative scholarship program, the Governor acted to end the controversial program, a move many of my Republican colleagues and I have long advocated.

I have initiated legislation to abolish this tuition waver program in the past and consistently supported efforts to end it. Unfortunately those efforts were not allowed a vote in the Illinois Senate. I continue to support this reform and hope and hope Democrat legislative leaders will allow a vote that would finally end the longstanding program.
