SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, issued the following statement in response to Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of Senate Bill 1, a measure to ensure equitable funding for public education and to increase resources to local schools:

“Governor Rauner’s reckless decision to veto education funding reform is now jeopardizing the education of our children. Once again, the governor has failed to do his job and is putting our state’s most vulnerable residents at risk to advance his extreme right-wing agenda.

“The bipartisan education funding reform measure I supported guaranteed that not a single school district would lose funding and many local schools would gain under the plan. The governor’s veto now puts at risk education funding for every single school district in the state.

“Rather than work in good faith on improving our children’s education, Governor Rauner has again chosen to create a crisis. I am prepared to work with all sides to do what is necessary to prevent the governor’s education crisis from spiraling out of control and take steps to ensure our schools open on time with the resources they need.”
