Governor Quinn Statement on House Passage of General Assembly Scholarship Repeal

SPRINGFIELD – March 21, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today released a statement regarding the Illinois House of Representatives passing House Bill 3810, which would abolish the troubled General Assembly Scholarship program.

“I applaud the members of the House for voting to end the legislative scholarship program. As I have repeatedly advocated in the past, scholarships – paid for by Illinois taxpayers- should be awarded only to those with merit who are in true financial need.

“I urge the Senate to pass this legislation swiftly.”
