Lawmakers are applauding Governor Quinn for wanting to end the controversial legislative scholarship program. Senate Minority leader Christine Radogno says the program has become, quote, "rife with abuse and a financial drain on our higher education system." Quinn agrees and says the money isn't going to students who really need the help. Lawmakers made an effort to reform the program this year by passing a bill that would prohibit them from giving the money to their own family members. Quinn says that's just not enough.
