Barickman Tries To Clarify Remarks on Holding School Funding Bill

Posted July 30, 2017

The Legislature won't convene until Monday when Democratic Senate President John Cullerton says he'll send Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner a plan that overhauls how IL funds schools. "Do your job. We're all here", Rauner said.

It's just the latest man-made crisis to hit Springfield, where lawmakers earlier this month voted to override Rauner's veto to end a state budget impasse that stretched into a third year, creating billions in debt and forcing some domestic violence shelters and other social service programs to shut down.

Changing our funding model, considers each district's resources and makes certain that money is not diverted away from any district.
It is time for Rauner to pass SB 1 in its entirety! "Mike Madigan and his enablers in the Statehouse are threatening to shut down schools unless they get a special $500 million bailout for Chicago public schools".

However, Rauner objects to the plan and will use his amendatory veto powers to revise and send it back to lawmakers. Barickman, a Bloomington Republican, implied that Rauner might hold onto the bill instead after receiving it, leading to negotiations with Democrats.

Senate President John Cullerton has not yet delivered SB1 to the governor.

Representative Lou Lang, D-Skokie, Deputy Majority Leader in the House, and a harsh critic of Governor Rauner was not as congenial when asked about the governor's announcement. Meanwhile, the first state payments are supposed to be sent to school districts in early August. "But until then, the state is not better off for it, and he is not a very good governor." he said.
