One Republican in the Senate broke party lines and voted to override the Governor’s veto of Senate Bill 1, and he is now speaking out. 50th district State Senator Sam McCann of Plainview was the lone Republican to keep Senate Bill 1, the school funding formula bill, as is.


McCann says at the end of the day, he’s only trying to do what’s best for the people of Illinois.



McCann says what has transpired in Springfield with Senate Bill 1 is not how lawmakers should have put the bill together.



The bill now is in the Illinois House’s hands, and representatives are scheduled to meet in Springfield on Wednesday.
