An interior view of the Illinois State Capitol dome. More Ill. legislators are refusing to participate in a scholarship program which allows legislators to give students living in their districts tuition waivers to for state-run universities.
Reporting from Rachel Otwell of WUIS used in this report.
More legislators are refusing to participate in Illinois' controversial General Assembly scholarship program. It's a program that allows legislators to give students living in their districts tuition waivers to for state-run universities.
Many lawmakers promise they hold little to no sway in the decision process of who wins a waiver.
But others are accused of ensuring the scholarships go to relatives or campaign supporters, making the program one more example of Illinois policy gone corrupt.
