SPRINGFIELD, Ill. –(ENEWSPF)—August 1, 2017.  House Speaker Michael J. Madigan issued the following statement Tuesday:

“Governor Rauner’s decision to pit one child against another is disappointing, especially as Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate continue to meet and negotiate. The governor has yet again chosen crisis over compromise, but Democrats will continue to work with legislative Republicans in order to enact education funding that is fair to every student, every school and every community.”
