House Speaker Michael Madigan says the woes suffered by Illinois colleges and universities with the budget impasse are impacting Illinois in ways beyond hardship for students. In his Wednesday remarks after being sworn in for a 17th term as Speaker, Madigan says Illinois is seriously damaging key economic engines.



Madigan notes companies are flocking to states like California despite the high cost of doing business. He says one reason is investment in its higher education system.
