Legislative Update - Illinois Senate Bill 16
The Illinois Senate passed SB16 this past spring, which, if passed by the Illinois House and signed by the Governor, will make significant changes to school funding in Illinois. District 25 would lose $3.29 million over the first 4 years after the bill is passed and $3.29 million each year after if the bill is passed. Please see the legislative update flyers below for more information on how the bill would change school funding, the expected impact on District 25, Illinois PTA’s position on the bill, and contact information for our state senators and representatives. Senator Matt Murphy, Representative David Harris, and Representative Tom Morrison are holding a Public Forum to discuss this issue on Tuesday, October 21st from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center.
