Governor tells U of I that education is priority

New governor, Pat Quinn, gave the University of Illinois some hope when he visited and told university leaders that education is at the top of his priority list.

The governor will give his budget address on March 18, and the university will wait to take action on its budget deficit based on the future of the state budget.

The governor's visit was reported on during a February 18, 2009, newscast by WCIA.
