Governor Rauner Wants To Change Democratic School Funding Plan
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is asking Democrats in the Illinois Senate to send him their school funding plan--so he can change it! The governor yesterday promised to use an amendatory veto on the proposal. Rauner doesn't like nearly a half-a-billion-dollars earmarked for Chicago Public Schools. Illinois lawmakers approved the school funding plan earlier this month, but did so in a way that forces the governor to spend money on schools in the way they see fit.
