Rose issues statement on Democrats refusing to negotiate in good faith on bipartisan plan to fund schools

Springfield, IL – State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) issued the following statement July 31 in response to Democrats refusing to negotiate in good faith on a bipartisan plan to fund schools:

“Given that the Democrats inserted this whole ‘school funding trap’ into last month’s budget, it should shock no one that they are now refusing to engage in good faith negotiations to get our schools open in the fall. I look forward to the Governor’s Amendatory Veto of Senate Bill 1, as we should not be bailing out the Chicago teacher pension system on the backs of downstate school children.”
