Editorial: A third year with a phony budget? If so, Governor, grab the veto pen

For the past two budget years, Democrats in the General Assembly adjourned after knowingly passing budgets that were unbalanced.

Get ready. It looks like they're going to do it again.
Seven days. That's how much longer Illinois lawmakers will be in Springfield before their scheduled adjournment. Seven days to settle the current fiscal year's state budget. Seven days to pass the budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Seven days to resolve, or not, a host of other policy issues, including school funding, that have been floating between the House and Senate.

Emanuel silent on potential 'code of silence' testimony

Days after a federal judge left the door open to Mayor Rahm Emanuel testifying about a Chicago Police Department code of silence, the mayor would not discuss the issue.

City attorneys on Friday offered to admit to a federal jury that a code of silence exists in the Police Department if it meant Emanuel would not have to testify about it at an upcoming trial involving two whistleblower cops.

DeVry Education Group CEO out after federal lawsuit

Daniel Hamburger — who was paid $5.3 million last year to lead the Downers Grove-based company — has been replaced by Lisa Wardell, a longtime DeVry board member with a background in private equity.


DeVry Education Group's CEO is out, two months after DeVry University was suspended from the Department of Veterans Affairs' Principles of Excellence program and four months after the Federal Trade Commission filed suit against DeVry, accusing the for-profit college of misleading students about job placement success.
