Senate FloorSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D – Deerfield) released the following statement this afternoon after voting in support of an override of Governor Rauner’s veto of historic school funding reform contained in Senate Bill 1:

“Senate Bill 1, a historic school funding reform plan that guarantees no school district loses funding, is supported by educators, superintendents and a host of education advocacy groups. For decades, Illinois’ system of school funding shortchanged children living in low-income communities while squeezing homeowners with ever-increasing property taxes.

“I am proud to support this fair and equitable plan that ensures every student has the resources they need to succeed.”
