TELL GOVERNOR J.B. PRITZKER:  DON’T HOLD SCHOOL FUNDING HOSTAGE

Despite bipartisan support to improve our school funding commitments, which we can fund from the extra $1 billion the state received last year in income taxes, Governor J.B. Pritzker’s budget address proposed withholding $150 million of state funds from our local K-12 schools unless voters approve his November income tax hike.

Tell Governor Pritzker to quit playing politics with our school funds, and stop his threat to hold school funding hostage to his tax hike. Our schoolchildren and teachers deserve more resources and certainty in funding.
