Illinois Democrats should either accept the Governor’s AV of Senate Bill 1, or offer their own alternative that bridges the gap.
“The Amendatory Veto issued by Governor Rauner this week ensures Senate Bill 1 is both fair and equitable to all 852 school districts in Illinois,” says Nybo. “If Democrats are unwilling to accept our plan, then I call on them to propose their own alternative that bridges the gap between Senate Bill 1 and the Amendatory Veto. The burden now falls on them to ensure schools don’t miss their first state school aid payments. We remain at the table, and are ready and willing to negotiate in good faith.”
