  • Governor Rauner to Talk Education Funding in Rockford Monday

Governor Rauner is calling on Democratic leaders to put politics aside and send Senate bill one to his desk immediately; it's the school funding reform bill which passed the General Assembly weeks ago.

State Sen. Andy Manar, a Democrat from Bunker Hill, sponsored the bill.

Principals of Chicago's schools will get their first look at the budgets for their schools on Thursday, and for the third year in a row, those spending plans will rely on hundreds of millions of dollars that Rauner has vowed to veto.

Gov. Bruce Rauner says he'll issue an amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1 to remove a pension "bailout" for Chicago Public Schools.

Chicago's students deserve adequately funded front-line classroom services and a school system that respects and engages engages families and neighborhood residents, built on best practices and a commitment to adequately fund a high-quality education for our youth.

Cullerton's spokesman wouldn't say if or when the legislation would be sent to Rauner, and instead said that the Senate had slowed the process "because Gov. Rauner threatened a knee-jerk veto". With 67 Democrats in the House, Madigan would need four Republicans to override Rauner.

Democrats, not surprisingly, expressed anger at Rauner's words.

Miami Beach area swimmer attacked by shark
Officials said the shark attack is the first reported at Haulover Beach. The swimmer was treated by lifeguards for bites to both his legs.


The $36 billion fiscal 2018 state budget the legislature enacted earlier this month over Rauner's veto prohibits the flow of state money to schools in the absence of an evidence-based funding model.

"I can not stress how important it is to address this issue now to ensure that our state's elementary, middle, and high schools open without interruption, with the resources they need", she said. IL schools rely on local property taxes to cover more than 60 percent of their costs, it said.

Schools are starting to register students this week.

Rauner's education adviser, Beth Purvis, has previously said the governor agreed with "90 percent" of SB1, though she also said he planned to veto it.

Among the more recent staff to exit the Rauner administration include his team in Washington, D.C., chief of staff for policy and legislative affairs, director of House and Senate Operations, Deputy Press Secretary, and two core members of his digital team, which led to at least one headache on Twitter. The new formula incorporates 27 different variables that weigh a school's poverty level, property values and transportation costs, among other factors.

"We have a chance to make history and adopt a new school funding plan that, for the first time, ensures all school districts in IL are equitably and adequately funded", Rauner said in a statement.
