RBC Co-Coordinator and Voices for Illinois Children’s Emily Miller wrote this compelling case for Gov. Rauner's short-term approach is hurting us now and well into the future. Regarding higher education cuts she writes: "It’s time for Illinois to ask: What, exactly, is it worth, and who will pay the price?
