State lawmakers taking action after Breuder buyout

Legislation is already being proposed to ensure that no public official ever gets a severance package as large as Breuder’s again.

Peter Breen, state representative for House District 48, which includes College of DuPage, said he will introduce a law to be given the moniker of the “Breuder Rule.”

“Instead of naming a building after COD President Robert Breuder, we should name reform legislation after him,” Breen said in a press release.

Along with banning large payouts, the proposed legislation would prevent property tax and tuition increases in community college districts where an excessive buyout occurs.
