Illinois Valley lawmaker starts petition against “bailout” of CPS

Posted by wlpo on February 19, 2016

So do you think the state should “bail out” the Chicago Public School system? You’re new state representative says no and wants you to sign a petition supporting his stance.

Governor Bruce Rauner wants the state to take over the failing district and let CPS file for bankruptcy. Democrat State Rep. Andy Skoog says that idea is a mistake. Skoog says he’ll vote against the governor’s plan because the taxpayers he represents “shouldn’t be on the hook for Chicago’s decades of mismanagement”.
