Bill  Update

After nearly year without a state budget, the legislature approved a bipartisan stopgap budget plan on June 30 to fund elementary and high schools through the school year.
The stopgap budget puts an additional $100 million in state aid in to Chicago Public Schools.  Additionally, we are finally providing pension parity for Chicago schools and taxpayers and ensuring that the state contributes to the CPS pension system like it does for every other district in the state. As we approach the new school year, we can be confident that this budget will allow our schools to operate through the end of the year while the legislature continues to work through a proposed school funding formula changes.
Senate Bill 2047 also provides temporary, six-month funding for all other state services, including mental health services, veterans services, in-home care for the elderly, Meals on Wheels, MAP tuition grants for college students, emergency services, and breast cancer screenings for women in need.
The compromise plan that we passed last month is a lifeline to our students, seniors and vulnerable Illinoisans. This is not a perfect solution, and a tremendous amount of work remains to be done to implement a long-term budget plan. I am encouraged by the bipartisan compromise exemplified in this stopgap plan, which received only four 'no' votes on the House floor. I remain committed to working with both sides of the aisle on budget solutions that prevent drastic cuts to services while cutting back unnecessary spending.
