SPRINGFIELD, IL – State Sen. Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) offered the following comments after the Governor issued an amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1 on August 1.
“For our schools, families, and our communities, I hope that we are nearing the end of the education funding debate with a solution that will more equitably distribute funding to Southern Illinois schools,” Fowler said. “I am optimistic the Senate and House negotiators will be able to achieve a result which will be acceptable to both sides of the political aisle and the Governor.”
