Quinn signs bill ending legislative scholarships

Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Wednesday that ends the scholarships after one more round of awards for the upcoming academic year.
His approval came shortly after the news that prosecutors have subpoenaed records relating to awards by Sen. Annazette Collins, D-Chicago.
