(Champaign, IL) — A University of Illinois graduate student is winning praise for her website that chronicles the rolling impact of the state budget impasse. Melissa Heil calls her website the “Illinois Atlas of Austerity,” and it offers graphics and information capsules that detail the effects of the lack of a state budget on higher education, youth, health services and social services. Using information from news articles, government documents and research from non-profit groups, Heil says she has plans to add sections on the environment and community colleges.
