The State Board of Education warns Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of the school funding reform bill may bring “further disruption and confusion” for all school districts in the state. The State Board issued a statement last week indicating efforts to install a new school funding formula depend on lawmakers. Rauner explained his use of amendatory veto powers to rewrite the bill.
Rauner pinpointed areas that need the most help.
Lawmakers are scheduled to return to Springfield later this month and could attempt to override Rauner’s amendatory veto.
