Illinois Budget Zeroed out for Agriculture Education
I guess, I finally caught up to the news today that Bruce Rauner's Budget for Agricultural education. Stu Ellis of Decatur Herald and Review wrote a fine article on the topic. I can't say where Mr. Rauner's staff have their heads because I try to keep this a G rated blog. How can they miss out on supporting the biggest industry in Illinois. If this was coal or petroleum money, the would be looking around to help. Even his State Board of Education, recommended money for Agricultural Education. I hope our legislators can see that they all need to get together on this budget thing and do whatever it takes to pass a veto proof budget.
