c.    Legislations could change how transfer works within Illinois.
d.    Senator Silverstein used legislation from California that had no program like IAI. He basically replaced California with Illinois in the bill.
e.    SB 00059 basically says that if a student has his/her Associates degree, they are given some measure of security when transferring to a 4 year school, at the Jr. level.
f.     Unintended consequences:
                                          i.    Major may not be open
                                         ii.    Better to transfer before Associate level reached
