Illinois Senate Votes To Reject Governor’s School Funding Veto

The Illinois Senate on Sunday rejected Governor Bruce Rauner’s changes to an education funding bill, sending the measure to the House, where similar action is uncertain, and leaving school districts guessing when state-aid dollars will begin flowing. The Democratic-controlled Senate voted 38-19 to override the governor’s amendatory veto, which proponents of the measure said resulted in substantial revisions. Data released by his office indicated his veto action would result in CPS receiving $463 million less than what it was allocated under the bill. It was unclear if the chamber would be able to muster the 71 votes required for an override.
