Andersson says he won't help override veto of school funding bill

However, Emanuel stopped short of predicting Republican lawmakers would again join Democrats in overriding the governor's veto of Senate Bill 1.

Asked about that Tuesday, Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said he doesn't "know that the analysis has been concluded on that".

Despite SB 1 proponents constantly emphasizing "fairness" as a primary motivator for passing the bill, the new funding formula kept special subsidies in place that allowed select districts to look poorer than they actually are when applying for state aid - particularly CPS. It is based on research and is the only fair and equitable solution we have to meet the needs of students in East Moline, Carbondale, Rockford and every district in between.

"The Democrats seem to be only interested in continuing to continue this political charade".

According to the Illinois State Board of Education, no Illinois district has reported that it could not open on time without funding. Andy Manar of Bunker Hill. In a claim that belongs in the why-let-facts-get-in-the-way category, he said the legislation was a "bailout" of the financially beleaguered Chicago school system, the third-largest in the country. This is money that our school districts desperately need in order to provide the best education to our students. He asserts that to be "fair", CPS may have the pension money or the block grant, but not both.

Prior to the bill being sent to Rauner on Monday, a bipartisan group of legislators met behind closed doors after starting talks over the weekend. Sen.

Decatur administrators have said the district will run out of money by mid-November if no state funds arrive, and other Macon County education leaders have expressed increasing anxiety about the uncertainty.

"All of our children should be treated equitably".

Chicago Public Schools has been especially hard hit, with annual budget deficits in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

The time for politics has passed.

A clause in the state budget lawmakers enacted over Rauner's veto last month would prevent schools from receiving state funding without the new "evidence-based" formula in place, meaning state funding for schools across the state can not be doled out until Senate Bill 1 or other similar legislation is enacted.

Schools across the state are expecting general state aid in the next couple of weeks.

Lawmakers have 15 days to decide whether they want to approve the governor's changes or override his veto. Rauner's "Chicago bailout" card is about the easiest one to throw in this state, and it has been played longer than anyone reading this has been alive.

"He is governing through anger", Emanuel said Wednesday. People will try to blame Rauner for this, but it actually falls on the Democrats because they inserted that provision into the state budget.

J.B. Pritzker accused Rauner of being "blinded by his crusade against Chicago's children and families" while Northwest Side Ald. This means CPS "is getting more state funding per pupil than their counterparts elsewhere in the state".
