Gov. Bruce Rauner Vetoes MAP Grant Bill

Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed a bill Friday that would have helped to fund the education of low-income students in Illinois, according to an NBC report.

Senate Bill 2043 would have provided $397.1 million to MAP grants, as The PHOENIX previously reported. MAP grants provide funds to Illinois residents who attend college in Illinois and are in need of financial aid. About 2,500 Loyola students received MAP grants for the 2015-2016 school year.

The bill was passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives on Jan. 28 and was sent to Rauner’s desk for approval on Feb. 16.
