05092017CM0307SPRINGFIELD — On Sunday, the Illinois Senate voted to override the governor's veto of the school funding reform legislation that would bring nearly $15 million to area schools. Senator Bertino-Tarrant issued the following statement in regards to the action taken:

“An immediate splurge of dollars seems tempting to rule out the validity of SB 1. However, long term outcomes of the amendatory veto will erode the years of work and lead to larger problems. The education funding bill is the most significant reform in over 20 years—reform that will bring certainty to school funding, as well as fair funding for our students.”
