(Chicago, IL) — It’s going to take a little longer for the state board of education to figure out the impact on local school districts of Governor Rauner’s proposed changes to the school funding reform bill. Rauner says the state school board agrees with him about his override changes. He says a first glance at their analysis shows that under his plan no district loses money and many poor districts get more. But he said the scoring is complicated since more than 800 Illinois school districts require separate calculations. Complicating matters is the fact that the Rauner team at first submitted some inaccurate financial information about his veto changes. Democrats say the bill cuts funds in the long run. An override vote could happen this weekend.
