The Universities, Too

I was just talking about how the State of Illinois has neglected to send the public libraries promised funds this year.  Now the Tribune is reporting that the state universities are saying the same thing:

“”We have drawn down our available resources, and we are now counting on tuition dollars to keep our doors open for students beginning the new spring semester. Still, no amount of cutting and sacrifice can make up for the absence of hundreds of millions of dollars in State Appropriation payments,” said the letter, which was sent to Gov. Pat Quinn and Comptroller Dan Hynes. “

The article goes on to talk about state vendors that aren’t getting paid, either.

This isn’t going to get fixed until someone neglects to plow the state highways.
