Gov. Ryan To Sign Adult Education Funding Bill
Gov. George H. Ryan has just scheduled
a ceremony to sign Senate Bill 914 on Monday, July 9, 2001 at 10 AM in
the Stephens Room in Menard Hall at Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield.
This bill establishes a fund in the State Treasury that allows the Illinois
Community College Board to receive and distribute federal adult education
and family literacy funds. Its signing is being used as a forum to
announce to the press and the public the appropriation of $9 million in
new state funds for adult education and family literacy programs.
Trustees contributed greatly to achieving this increase and to making adult education
and literacy a rising priority in Illinois, and Gov. Ryan cordially invites you
to attend this event. Please come to celebrate your achievement and to thank the
Governor, his staff, and the legislators in attendance for their support in the
transfer of administration and the appropriation of the largest single-year
increase for adult education on record. All adult education program providers
are being invited separately and being asked to bring their students to
demonstrate appreciation to the Governor for another step forward for adult
education and literacy in Illinois.
If you plan to attend, please let Sarah Hawker know so she can give a list
of attendees to the Governor's office. She can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-785-0088.
