Lawmakers Return to Springfield to Fix School Funding Bill
The Illinois House convenes Tuesday and will have to resolve the Senate bill on school funding. The funding overhaul approved this summer allocates money to districts across the state. With big funding bills, often comes a trailer bill, which should be used to make minor fixes. Lawmakers in Central Illinois promise the issue will be handled. For now, schools will be paid based on the formula created under the school funding overhaul.
