(CBS) — There won’t be any more community college severance contracts of the type that led to a voter revolt at the College of DuPage.
Gov. Bruce Rauner Tuesday signed into law a bill limiting similar deals.
It was a low-key ceremony. The only person on hand besides the bill’s sponsors was COD Board Chair Kathy Hamilton, who blew the whistle on college President Robert Brueder’s $762,000 severance package and spearheaded a voter revolt.
The bill’s author, State Rep. Jeanne Ives, R-Wheaton, said the problem doesn’t end with the Brueder agreement.
