Second, new state funds will be distributed to ensure that those districts with the largest gap between current spending and adequacy will be funded first.

Meridian Superintendent Dan Brue said he accepts that some compromise is necessary, although he doesn't support the tax credit. You're going to want employees you know can do the job. "But we finally got it done". "I'm glad it passed, because the alternative is scary".

Cavaletto says overall he likes the bill which will bring additional state dollars to all area schools.

Lawmakers voted 73-34 to send the legislation to the Senate, where a vote is expected today.

The vote came shortly after lawmakers failed to approve a separate school funding plan hailed as a bipartisan compromise between legislative leaders.

The state also would make a much larger contribution for Chicago teachers' pensions: $221 million, compared with about $12.2 million a year ago.

Daniel Biss, D-Evanston, said he voted against the proposal because of the tax credit, calling it a "dangerous" precedent.

The house then held an override vote on Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of an earlier version of an education-funding bill - but that effort fell short.

Democrats said it closed huge disparities in per-student funding between wealthy and poor districts. Rauner vetoed an automatic registration bill a year ago, saying it would lead to voter fraud, but signed a revised version that passed the legislature with unanimous support. Both parties agree the 20-year-old calculation IL now uses is unfair, but they can't agree on an overhaul.

It's the first step and delighted to get a win this year. "I hit it ideal , hoping it was the right number and watched it go in". Believing he had a two shot lead as he teed off at the 72nd hole, Stenson's approach finished just over the back of the green.


That he was forced to give up so much to the Democrats to get the education funding bill compromise does not bode well for his electoral chances.

The bipartisan measure would have provided state funding for more than 800 school districts for this first time this academic year.

Illinois Federation of Teachers President Dan Montgomery says Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner is using students "as leverage for private school tax credits".

While the Senate overrode the veto on August 13, an override attempt in the House on Monday fell short of a three-fifths majority requirement. After putting off a vote because of leaders' negotiations on a fresh deal, the House tried unsuccessfully late Monday to follow suit. An override would require Republican votes, and there were no GOP lawmakers on record with supporting an override. It received 63 yes votes.

Lawmakers in the Illinois House are debating a plan to overhaul the way the state funds schools. My best wishes to all IL school children for a safe and productive school year.

OR became the first state to implement automatic registration past year, and the results were impressive. This compromise also provides much-needed mandate relief for school districts and presents avenues for property tax relief.

Per the news source, the vetoed measure would have increased the state's minimum wage to $9 in January and gradually raise it up to $15 by 2022.

"It protects the rights of parents to choose the school that best meets the needs of their children - providing more school choice for children from low-income families. Nothing is more important than educating our children".
