The Illinois House failed to override Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of funding for college MAP grants and two-year schools on Wednesday afternoon. The House debated restoring the funding of money that the Governor and House Republicans have argued the state doesn’t have.

 

The Democrat majority needed 71 votes to override the Governor’s veto; however the measure failed on a vote of 69 to 48. Rauner vetoed Senate Bill 2043 back on February 19.
