"As no other evidence-based formula exists, it is incumbent upon our elected officials to forge an agreement on #SB1."

Yesterday afternoon, the Illinois Senate voted to override Governor Rauner’s veto of Senate Bill 1, the school funding reform bill. By a vote of 38-19, senators from across the state stood together with parents and schools across Illinois for fair school funding. Today’s Senate vote is a positive step. But #SB1 is not yet law. The House must join the Senate and override the Governor’s SB1 veto. Until then, schools still remain without state formula funding for this school year. Many remain weeks away from shutting their doors. Advocates across the state should join together and urge their representatives to support an override of SB1. #fixtheformula

WTTW coverage of PolitiFact's article rating Gov. Rauner's bailout claim: "false."

Despite Gov. Rauner’s amendatory veto of #SB1, we will continue our work to see the bill enacted into law and ensure all Illinois schools open on time with the resources they need.
