The Illinois House will start the proceedings on Senate Bill 1 Wednesday morning, and many area school leaders will be in Springfield to testify on the bill and education funding reform.


Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau is among the education officials that will be in the state capitol for the proceedings. He says he doesn’t have a clear idea when the house will take any kind of vote on SB1.



Fuerstenau says lawmakers and education leaders have committed too much time to give up on school funding reform.



Fuerstenau says as of Monday, SB1 had not been recorded in the house log. He says once it is in the log, the Illinois House has 15 days to act on Governor Rauner’s veto.
