SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Steve Stadelman (D-Rockford) released the statement below following Gov. Bruce Rauner’s amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1, an evidence-based school funding reform measure.

“I am disappointed that the governor failed to sign legislation that would ensure schools open in the fall and work towards an equal education for all children.

This legislation brings $5 million to Rockford Public Schools and puts our state’s neediest districts on equal footing with the rest of the state.

I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to fix our broken school funding formula.”
