All eyes now move to the Illinois House of Representatives as they will now look to vote to override Governor Bruce Rauner's veto on Senate Bill One, a school funding reform bill built on an evidence based model. State Representative of the 95th District Avery Bourne says she doesn't support SB1 in it's current form, saying it gives a disproportional amount of money to Chicago schools.
 
Bourne appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show and says both parties from both houses want to find a solution to the school funding problem in the state, but a last minute change to SB1 sent money money to Chicago.
 
 
The Illinois Senate voted to override the Governor's veto of the bill, however Representative Bourne says she doesn't think the house will do the same.
 
 
Per a stipulation in the Illinois budget, a new funding formula must be put in place before Illinois Schools can receive state aid appropriated in the budget.
