GRAYSLAKE — State Sen. Melinda Bush, D-Grayslake, issued the following statement on news Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed Monetary Award Program grant funding this afternoon.

“It is unconscionable that the governor continues to hold hostage the futures of college students who now need to weigh whether or not to drop out of school,” Bush said. “Today has set a horrible example to every student who has been told to work hard and achieve, even though their family may struggle financially.”
