Lawmakers considered numerous measures for IL veterans
“I think that a lot of times you’ll see somebody throw the word “veterans” into some bill that may be a bad bill otherwise, but it looks better if you throw the word veterans into it because we all do appreciate the work they’ve done on our behalf. But at the end of the day, we have to make sure that it’s a good, safe bill for everyone involved.”
A measure that would have counted some veterans as in-state residents while attending Illinois universities was one that failed to pass.
