This week, both chambers continued to work through budget discussions and movement on the governor’s appointees. The timetable for the end of session remains unclear as there are still differences between chambers on nearly every budget bill and a lot of process left to come to a resolution. There was no movement this week on the major policy bills we are still tracking. At the federal level, several hearings were held this week on the future of workforce programs and infrastructures, featuring many representatives from Community Colleges around the country. Additionally, First Lady Jill Biden visited Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois and shared her support for Community Colleges and tuition support.
