ManarSOTS01252017SPRINGFIELD – Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) issued the following statement regarding the governor’s state of the state address today:

“Gov. Rauner used a lot of words today to explain the state of the state – more than 3,900 of them, as a matter of fact. But the reality is that actions speak louder than words. For two years the governor has been all talk and little action as the state declined without a budget under his watch.

“I am pleased that Gov. Rauner acknowledged the work of the education funding reform commission in his speech today, but for the sake of Illinois public schools he must turn his words into action and urge the commission to present legislation outlining a new funding formula. The state of Illinois already has piles of dusty research reports that show how rotten our school funding formula is. If Gov. Rauner’s commission produces yet another report and no actual legislation to advance in the Legislature, we will have failed our young people and our schools yet again.”
