School District Funding Bill Comparison

School District Funding Bill Comparison

Rauner will be in Rockford to discuss funding reform later on today. Despite final approval on May 31, Sen.

Rauner says Senate Bill One was drafted as a bipartisan agreement on funding our schools.

"Why are they sitting on that bill?" Unlike the tax hike vote, which was precarious even for some Democrats, making sure schools get the money they need to open their doors is a much easier vote to cast, even if opponents label it a vote in favor of bailing out Chicago.

"Senator Duckworth and I have sent Governor Rauner four letters asking a simple question: What would the Republican repeal bill do to the state of IL?"

Wallace says if the bill is vetoed and they can't override it, there will be over 120 school districts in IL that can't open this year.

Asked if Rauner's theory was true, Cullerton spokesman John Patterson said "no", but would not say when the legislation would be sent to Rauner's desk.

Emanuel has said Chicago schools will open September 5 as scheduled - regardless of what Rauner does. The Senate margin is veto proof, but the House total is well short of the 60 percent required for an override.

Kashmiris Protest Against Amarnath Attack, Mehbooba Mufti Says 'Nobody Can Kill Kashmiriyat'
Several prominent city organisations and activists gathered at Azad Maidan Wednesday to condemn the attack on Amarnath pilgrims. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to accept responsibility for the attack.

The First Gonorrhoea Vaccine May Be On The Horizon
However, for many people, the infection is asymptomatic and so they can pass on the infection as they have no idea they have it. Coinfection with both gonorrhoea and chlamydia is relatively common in sexually active adults who don't use condoms .

And his spokeswoman, Laurel Patrick, says Article IV, Section 9 (e) of the state Constitution gives Rauner the power to "return a bill together with specific recommendations for change" to the legislature.

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

"That is so hurtful to me, so insulting to me", Rauner said after being accused of not caring about poor minority students in Chicago.

It is now being held on a procedural motion, as lawmakers seek more time to negotiate after Rauner vowed to veto the measure, decrying it as a "bailout" for CPS.

Any protracted fight in Springfield over school funding would be devastating for local school districts, as the State Board of Education has said a funding plan must be approved by August 3 for normal payments to be sent to districts by the start of the fall semester.

As districts across the state face the possibility of a delayed start to the school year this fall, Gov. Bruce Rauner and Chicago Public Schools are squaring off over what to do with a potential fix for the state's broken education funding formula. The new formula incorporates 27 different variables that weigh a school's poverty level, property values and transportation costs, among other factors.

The mass exodus of key Rauner staff and their replacement with members and allies of a conservative think tank continued Monday and Tuesday, with the total number of departures from the governor's office reaching at least 20.
