Illinois Valley senator pushing idea to fully fund schools

Posted by wlpo on May 30, 2016

Could State Senator Sue Rezin help save schools like Hall and Streator Elementary from closing?

The Republican of Morris is co-sponsoring a proposed bill that she says would fully fund K thru 12th grade education for the first time in seven years. Rezin’s plan gives $227 million to K-12 schools and it includes nearly two million dollars for agriculture education.

The idea was just introduced in the senate yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to leave Springfield for a break after today.

So far only Republicans have signed on to sponsor Rezin’s proposal.
