URGE GOVERNOR J.B. PRITZKER AGAINST HOLDING SCHOOL FUNDING HOSTAGE

In his annual budget address this year, Governor J.B. Pritzker proposed withholding $150 million of state funds for local K-12 schools unless voters approve his income tax hike in the November elections. Pritzker also proposed cutting transportation funding by $40 million if his tax hike doesn’t pass, which would harm rural school districts in particular.

Yes, I urge Governor Pritzker to not hold school funding hostage to his tax hike. Our schoolchildren and teachers deserve more resources and certainty in funding.
