Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is indicating he wants the state to help more needy college students.
Quinn will deliver his budget message on February 22. He is not releasing details yet, but said the state has to pay for priorities -- and he places higher education near the top of his list.
After a meeting with college and university presidents, Quinn called for more money to go toward financial aid.
"I think the Governor has to work with these leaders on investing in higher education, particularly scholarships for deserving students,” Quinn said.
