Rauner Threatened Schools’ Financial Wellbeing for Political Gain

Latest News

The DGA releases the following statement, attributable to Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro, regarding Governor Bruce Rauner’s signing of the state’s new education funding formula:
“Today’s bill signing should not overshadow the fact that Bruce Rauner threatened schools’ ability to stay open with his reckless amendatory veto and political games. During this entire process Governor Rauner divided the state and once again pushed the state into crisis for political gain. But Rauner’s cynical tactics never received any support from state education leaders and Republicans refused to support his amendatory veto. In the end Rauner’s failed leadership only created more financial turmoil for school districts already suffering from his manufactured and destructive budget crisis.”
