Fowler statement on Governor’s amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1
The following is a statement by Sen. Dale Fowler regarding the Illinois Senate’s overriding the Governor’s amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1.
“It’s unfortunate Senate Democrats voted to override the Governor’s school funding reform plan, a plan that would have provided the 38 school districts in my district $7.5 million more than under Senate Bill 1,” said Fowler. “I remain hopeful that we can continue to work toward a compromise that treats all Illinois school districts fairly, especially those in downstate Illinois. The time for partisan gamesmanship is over, the students of Illinois deserve nothing less than our best effort.”
