"This is not about taking resources from Chicago", Rauner's veto message reads.
There are actually three possible outcomes to the governor's action.
Compared to the current bill, Rauner's version would cause CPS to lose $203 million, according to calculations from his office.
However, the new budget Democrats and some Republicans approved over Rauner's objections requires a different school funding formula for schools to get funding.
Once the Senate reads Rauner's veto into the record, which could happen as soon as today, the clock starts ticking.
The details of Rauner's complicated amendatory veto are still being sorted out at the Capitol. But, as we've seen time and time again, for better or for worse, we aren't Wisconsin or Indiana.
Senate GOP Leader Bill Brady tells WJBC's Sam Wood the school funding bill was sent to the Governor's desk. The comments came minutes after Democratic Sen.
Because of the ongoing standoff, State Rep. Dan Brady, R-Bloomington, said he believes there will be a delay in those payments.
Jacoby says the local districts support Senate Bill 1, because it is the first time in decades that there's been agreement on a funding formula. "He used that veto power to strike out increases that would go to districts based on certain factors relative to the funding formula".
With the first day of school quickly approaching, parents and children are rushing to supply giveaways like the one at Shawnee Worship Center in Vienna.
Right now school districts across IL have the money to open in the coming weeks, but only for a few months.
"The Democrats seem to be only interested in continuing to continue this political charade".
Fox said the continuing financial issues in IL are also causing a teaching shortage throughout the state. He's flatly against any additional help for Chicago, which he says already disproportionately benefits because of House Speaker Michael Madigan, a Chicago Democrat who's the longest-serving House speaker nationwide.
Rauner made it known he did not like the CPS part of the bill.
"All of our children should be treated equitably".
"We're seriously considering paying salaries and the light bill and water bill, and everybody else will have to wait", said Mike Gauch, superintendent of Harrisburg Community Unit School District 3, which educates close to 1,900 students in this coal-mining town about 350 miles (563.km) south of Chicago.
Republicans have long promised to cut the block grant that gives CPS an extra $250 million dollars per year.
Rauner faces re-election in 2018.
Lawmakers have 15 days to decide whether they want to approve the governor's changes or override his veto.
Three-fifths of the legislature must vote to agree with recommendations, or to override Rauner. "It's wrong and unfair to divert money from the classroom", Rauner said.
