Illinois Senate overrides Rauner's veto of school funding bill

The Democratic-controlled legislature, which passed the funding formula bill in May without a veto-proof majority, is scheduled to meet next week.

71 members of the House (a three-fifths majority) must also vote to override - which may prove to be more hard, as just 60 voted for SB 1 the first time - or the legislation dies without a contingency plan in place.

A failure by the Illinois House and Senate to muster a required three-fifths majority vote to override or accept changes Rauner made to the bill would kill the measure. Andy Manar, the Bunker Hill Democrat who sponsored Senate Bill 1, called on Rauner to reach a compromise.

Earlier on Sunday, the governor called on lawmakers to uphold his veto saying in part, "The numbers show my plan is better for the state, making education funding fair and equitable for the first time in IL".

Illinois' recently based budget requires an evidence based funding formula to be passed, before money can be sent to school districts.

Local officials are reacting to the vote. Instead, he said the plan would hurt school districts throughout the state.

IL legislators are still in a gridlock on whether to pass their education funding bill. "Senate Bill 1 is the best possible solution to fixing the formula and I believe it should be the law of IL".

The amendatory veto meant Chicago's schools would receive about $463 million less than the original measure, according to analysis by the state board of education released on Saturday from Rauner's office.

Without a new funding formula in place, IL for the first time missed an initial state aid payment to its 852 school districts on Thursday.

"There's no question that overriding Rauner's veto was the right thing to do". Normally these funds would first go out on August 10. We took a step forward on fixing an immediate problem today. "The numbers bear out how broken our system is and how important our changes are. If state lawmakers can't agree on a solution immediately, they should enact the existing funding formula - as flawed as it may be - to ensure all schools can open on time, and resume negotiations on education funding reform separately".

The governor is calling on state lawmakers to uphold his veto.
