Jimenez calls on Republicans and Democrats to work together on MAP grants, higher education funding


State Representative Sara Wojcicki Jimenez (R-Springfield) today called on Republicans and Democrats to work together to pass legislation funding MAP grants and higher education in Illinois. Jimenez's call for compromise came before the House voted on a motion to override the Governor's veto of an unfunded higher education appropriation bill. Jimenez is a co-sponsor of House Bill 4539, which funds MAP grants and higher education while identifying a source of revenue to pay for the bill.
