Leaders hold budget rally at SIU

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE -- SIU President Randy Dunn addressed students and faculty Tuesday on the campus of SIUC.

Nearly 100 people packed into the stone center on SIU's campus -- all concerned about the state budget crisis.

Those in attendance are pushing for Governor Bruce Rauner to end the budget stalemate and fund higher education across Illinois.

State Representative John Bradley shared the crowd's concern, telling the Governor to "Quit playing games, get this done for the people of Southern Illinois and for the middle class and help these kids who are trying to get into the middle class stay in it."

Bradley claims Illinois has enough money right now to fund most services at a reasonable level.

The problem is, it's coming down to filing court orders to get that money.
