Barickman statement on Governor's State of the State address

"It was good to hear the governor highlight some of the accomplishments of the last two years, while noting the challenges that still lie ahead, and all that we need to accomplish to move our state forward,” said Barickman. “I believe recent bipartisan negotiations on a budget framework offer us an opportunity for optimism that we could be getting close. My focus remains on helping our leadership team move negotiations forward, while continuing to work with my colleagues on the School Funding Reform Commission to ensure that the budget includes legislation to enact a system to better fund our schools and help all Illinois students.”
