State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) issued the following statement in response to Senate Democrats overriding Gov. Bruce Rauner’s Amendatory Veto of Senate Bill 1, education funding reform:
“Instead of using Governor Rauner’s Amendatory Veto as a bridge to bipartisan compromise on education funding reform, Senate Democrats instead chose to override the Governor’s Amendatory Veto of Senate Bill 1 on their own, legislation that treats Chicago Public Schools better than the rest of the state.
“I am fighting for more new funding and true equity for schools in my Senate District. Senate Bill 1 takes money that should be going to schools in our area and sends it to Chicago. That is not fair. I believe a compromise can be found on this issue, but we are running out of time. Let’s get serious and solve this issue together.”
