Illinois Senate overrides Rauner's veto of school funding bill

Gov. Bruce Rauner speaks to the Herald News Editorial Board on Wednesday Aug. 2 2017 about his decision to amendment veto Senate Bill 1

Gov. Bruce Rauner's amendatory veto of the state's K-12 funding bill offers a lesson for all politicians, Rep. Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville) suggested recently.

SB 1 is a measure to move IL to an "evidence-based model" of education funding, which would take into account each district's individual needs, as well as its local revenue sources, when appropriating state aid - prioritizing districts that are furthest from being fully-funded.

Democrats are criticizing Rauner's goal of switching from per-district to per-pupil funding, arguing it would have dire consequences for city schools, many of which have been hard hit by dwindling enrollments.

However, Rauner maintained that CPS' net difference between the two plans is only $241 million when taking into account the state pick-up of the district's $221 million pension payment, though funding to do so has not been appropriated. Rauner issued an amendatory veto the next day, making changes that included removing hundreds of millions of dollars for Chicago Public Schools.

IL legislators are still in a gridlock on whether to pass their education funding bill.

Rauner extolled an analysis of his changes released Saturday by the Illinois State Board of Education.

Tainted eggs found in Hong Kong, checks intensified
The Netherlands is Europe's biggest egg producer - and one of the largest exporters of eggs and egg products in the world. Heather Hancock, FSA chairwoman, said it was not "something to worry about" and that any health impact was unlikely.

Without a new funding formula in place, IL for the first time missed an initial state aid payment to its 852 school districts on Thursday.

Before the Senate took up the veto override, the plan's sponsor, Sen.

"Today, the governor still has the opportunity to show real leadership by engaging with lawmakers to reach a bipartisan compromise on this legislation", Manar said.

Manar said Rauner's comments about schools getting more money were "little more than smoke and mirrors".

The CPS budget also assumes a $269 million boost in local funding that the district said it is working with the city to identify.

"The way the original bill treated Chicago was not beneficial to the district I represent", Wehrli said. The formula would then feed money to schools based on what each district needs to provide an "adequate" education. A hold harmless provision would ensure districts don't lose any money than they already get, but it could mean they're in line to get less money from an increase in school funding. Rauner has called that money - along with a requirement that the state pay the employer portion of Chicago teacher pensions, as it does for every other district - a "bailout". It will be updated.
