Sen. Hutchinson votes to override veto on school funding

Illinois Sen. Toi Hutchinson, D – Chicago Heights, who represents Flossmoor in the Illinois legislature, released the following statement Sunday, Aug. 13, after voting to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of historic school funding reform contained in Senate Bill 1.  “For decades, Illinois students have suffered under a system of school funding that is outdated, inequitable and unjust. Children living in communities with little property wealth have been relegated to a sub-par education while homeowners have suffered under increasing property taxes. Years of hard work on both sides of the aisle have worked to change that . . .
