(Chicago, IL) — Mayor Emanuel is joining mayors from the region to call for an override of Governor Rauner’s changes in the school funding bill, SB-1. Mayor Emanuel stood with about a dozen members of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus today to ask lawmakers to undo Rauner’s changes to SB-1. Mayor John Osterburg of Park Forest said the bill as originally passed improves a bad situation and provides at least some equity. Legislative leaders are gathering again tomorrow to work on a compromise funding bill, while House Speaker Michael Madigan holds off calling an override vote that would need four renegade Republicans to pass.
