ICCTA Action Alert
Nov. 29, 2000
Veto Session Update
Gov. George Ryan will hold a news conference tomorrow
(Thursday, Nov. 30) to announce that the National Center for Public Policy in Higher
Education has ranked Illinois as the #1 higher education system in the United States.
Illinois Community College Board chair Ed Duffy will join other higher education officials
in the 11:15 AM briefing at the State Capitol.
House Joint Resolution 19 was amended by the Illinois Senate today and returned to the
Illinois House for its concurrence (approval of the Senate amendment). It appears
probable that the measure will pass both houses. Sponsored by Sen. Steve Rauschenberger
(R-Elgin) and Rep. Connie Howard (D-Chicago), HJR 19 calls for a study of part-time and
non-tenure-track benefits in Illinois higher education. For a summary of this legislation,
