murphyheadshotSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) issued the following statement after the governor signed the proposal passed by the Senate last week to invest in MAP grants, community colleges and four-year universities.

“This investment in Illinois’ future shows what the governor and legislative leaders can accomplish when they drop the partisan rhetoric and focus on the real issues facing our state. While it is far from perfect, these funds provide temporary relief to students and colleges in Illinois.

“The governor and legislative leaders must now come together to put together a full plan to provide stability for Illinois’ economic future.”
