Legislative Successes Achieved

IN OTHER legislative news, a bill that would have removed the authority to exempt University positions from Civil Service and make them Academic Professionals, and that would have given that authority to the State Universities Civil Service System (SUCCS), Senate Bill 1150 (http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=&SessionId=84&GA=97&DocTypeId=SB&DocNum=1150&GID=11&LegID=&SpecSess=&Session=), passed the State Senate but failed in the State House of Representatives, and consequently did not pass. Since it failed to get the authority it wanted, SUCCS is expected to bypass the State Legislature and attempt to get that authority from the State’s University Civil Service Merit Board.

A BILL that would have stripped University employees of the tuition waiver for their children enrolled in State universities also failed this session.
