Three Local Colleges Get State Funding For Maintenance Projects

Three local community colleges are set to receive state funding for on campus projects. A press release from the office of Senator Dale Fowler announced approximately $150 million dollars in funding that will be allocated to Southeastern Illinois College, John A. Logan College and Shawnee Community College for the 2019 fiscal year to be put toward much needed maintenance undertakings. Governor Bruce Rauner declared that the funds will “help our communities deliver better services to both local businesses and residents” and shows how the government can play a positive role in the state’s economy.
