Berg: Illinois Senate passes Chicago bailout, overrides Rauner's amendatory vote

Illinois Senate Looks To Address School Funding Plan Berg: Illinois Senate passes Chicago bailout, overrides Rauner's amendatory vote
Parmenio Sano | 17 Agosto, 2017, 09:31

The Illinois Senate's override of Gov. Bruce Rauner's amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1 was an "unnecessary partisan act" that followed a lack of good faith negotiations, Sen.

When asked his thoughts on what might take place as the House meets, McCann says he can't say for certainty what they might do, though he ssys he's been encouraging House Republicans to dig deep and do the right thing.

When it originally passed in late May, the measure got 60 votes of support; 71 are required for an override, meaning that even if every Democratic legislator switched to an "aye", four Republicans would still have to get on board.

Members of the Senate rejected those changes and successfully overrode the governor on a 38-19 vote. "They want to stretch this out as long as they can and let school districts holler to their representatives and see what happens".


Earlier Wednesday, school superintendents from across the state gave testimony to House lawmakers in opposition of Rauner's changes.

Donkin is basing that assessment on the fact that the state's only school-funding mechanism, included in Senate Bill 1, was vetoed by Gov. Bruce Rauner on August 1. But both Rauner and he say they're willing to compromise. Rauner spokeswoman Laurel Patrick denied the governor received any offer. It's also becoming a political tool pitting suburban and downstate schools against Chicago Public Schools. A district in such a county wouldn't fully benefit from the higher property values, but Rauner's veto would add that additional wealth to the local district's calculation — and drive down state funding for the schools.

Recently, the state made a decision to cut funding from Chicago's pension system, providing $4 billion to the state pension system but only $12 million to the city's teacher pension fund.

The House is scheduled to be in session next Wednesday. Sanders - whose district enrollment figures have been trending downward for the past couple of years - says over the longterm, his district would lose more than it gains. Will Davis of Homewood put Rauner's veto language into a new bill to gauge support. Opponents of Senate Bill 1 say the bulk of the almost $5 billion set aside for schools used to go to districts in need, but instead, special subsidies now flow to Chicago and districts in Cook County and its collar counties. You'll hear some elected officials here in Chicago say my veto is because I don't care about Chicago, or I'm anti-Chicago ... He calls SB-1 in its original form a bailout for the city. But school chiefs in some of those districts were not impressed.
