(Chicago, IL) — Senator Dick Durbin is levelling some harsh criticism at Governor Rauner for playing regional politics on the school funding issue. Durbin told the City Club of Chicago today that the partisan budget battle over which Governor Rauner has presided has done economic damage to the state that will take ten years or more to repair. Durbin says providing adequate school funding should be beyond what he called the “shameful, disgraceful” regional politics Rauner is playing. He said it’s beneath the dignity of Rauner’s office to pit one region of the state against another. Rauner’s office didn’t comment on Durbin’s remarks.
