Governor Bruce Rauner is calling lawmakers back to Springfield to discuss school funding. Governor Rauner wants the legislature back in town Wednesday for a special session to tackle the issue. He’s been asking lawmakers to send him the funding reform bill they passed so he can issues an amendatory veto, removing money for Chicago Teach Pensions.
The measure has not been sent to his desk yet. A new education funding formula must be signed into law in order for schools to get money from the state.
