College Illinois program now open again to parents

Beginning Monday, Illinois parents can once again buy into the state's prepaid college tuition program.

Sales of new contracts were put on hold last year due to financial problems.

The College Illinois program, as it is called, has an estimated 30 percent shortfall, and the state is not obligated to cover the difference if the program runs out of money.
