State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement regarding Senate Floor Amendment 1 to HB3190

“I am extremely disappointed that Democrat leaders turned their backs on compromise and once again put the interest of Chicago Public Schools (CPS) ahead of every other student in the state,” said Sen. Barickman. “I still believe we have an opportunity to come together in a bipartisan fashion and truly fix our broken school funding formula. However, Democrats continued insistence on including a massive bailout of CPS ignores the bipartisan framework that I previously suggested. I remain dedicated to finding compromise, but until Democrats decide to work in good faith toward helping all Illinois students, then real reform will elude us.”
