Governor Rauner gives Detention to Lawmakers

Governor Rauner gives Detention to Lawmakers”

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner sits down with News 8 for a one-on-one interview to talk about education funding and the new deadline lawmakers face.

The special session will begin Wednesday; Rauner said it will end by Friday, July 31. This time it's to hash out a new school funding formula. We've laid this out. SB 1 eliminates the Chicago block grant, which automatically appropriates specific funding to CPS each year, but takes that $203 million into account - plus the district's $221 million in employer pension contributions - when calculating the district's baseline funding minimum. Here he is trying to say the school funding bill should be on his desk.

Without a funding formula in place, the Illinois State Board of Education will only be able to distribute $1.5 billion in state money and federal funds to districts, according to ISBE spokeswoman Jackie Matthews.

John Cullerton is the Democratic Senate president from Chicago.

Rauner contends the $250 million grant was meant to help pay retirement-account costs - something Chicago officials and proponents of the plan reject - and so the extra money is a "bailout" for past pension-payment shortfalls. "What they'll try to do is, as they've done for the last two and a half years, obfuscate, delay, have excuses, come and spin false messages to you after some meeting".

Alfred Angelo bridal closes doors; brides in panic
At the store Friday afternoon, most of the lights were off and the doors were locked. The apparent end of Alfred Angelo is completely of out the blue for those at R.K.

Rauner says it's possible the state could call for evacuations if necessary.

"I'd like to have a conversation with Governor Rauner in hopes of getting some clarity as to exactly what is going on", Cullerton said in a statement. We slowed down the process in the Senate in order to let everyone blow off some steam, politically-speaking.

Now, those tempers continue to flare from both sides of the aisle and taxpayers as another costly special session kicks off Wednesday. That has raised the possibility some school districts largely dependent on state funding may not be able to open in August.

"I will amendatory veto it, and from there we can discuss the changes that I have made, and we can implement either those or if someone else has another idea that's fine".
