Illinois governor calls lawmakers back over school funding dispute

Rauner Again Vows To Veto More Money For CPS

He suggested he wanted to excise a portion of the bill that would require the state to pay the employer portion of Chicago Public Schools' teacher pension costs - like every other district.

But if the bill is not sent to him, Rauner said he would call a special session to focus on school funding with a deadline of July 31.

The fate of Illinois' fiscal 2018 appropriation for school districts remains up in the air with a showdown looming in the coming days between Gov. Bruce Rauner and the General Assembly's Democratic majority.

Rauner said he supports the bill's establishment of an evidence-based model that ties public school funding to "best practices" aimed at enhancing student achievement.

Gov. Bruce Rauner vowed again Monday to veto part of a bill that would give the Chicago Public Schools $300 million more in state money - and said he would order a special session and demand that lawmakers revise - again - the way schools are funded in IL.

Gov. Rauner has urged the legislature to send him the bill immediately to ensure all schools open on time. That "pill" would put hundreds of millions of dollars into Chicago's pension system.

"They want to take money away from our low income kids all around our state and divert it to a pension payment that is just fundamentally wrong for our children" he said.

"I'd like to have a conversation with Governor Rauner in hopes of getting some clarity as to exactly what is going on", Cullerton said in a statement on Monday. The median state funding increase for Kankakee County school districts under the plan would be $56,806. We slowed down the process in the Senate in order to let everyone blow off some steam, politically-speaking. "I'd like the opportunity to make sure he knows what is in the proposal from the people who wrote it so he can make a rational decision." he said in a statement Monday afternoon. He says he wants to discuss the matter with Rauner instead of starting a costly special session.

"I am happy to have all kinds of discussions after the bill is on my desk", he said.

One thing both sides agree on is schools need to and should open on time. But threatened with a veto, the Senate never sent Rauner that legislation, prompting the governor's call for special session.

Despite questions from Chicago reporters Monday morning, Rauner has still not given out any information on what will be in his amendatory veto.
