Legislation being debated in Springfield that would require Illinois public universities to admit first-time freshman applicants that finish with a grade-point average in the top ten percent of their high school graduating class. 
 
State Representative Norine Hammond of Macomb has Western Illinois University in her district. She voted against the measure. 
 
 
The bill was turned down in the Illinois House, but did receive enough votes for the sponsor to utilize a parliamentary procedure called “postponed consideration” meaning the legislation can be considered again.
