***The following statement is attributable to the Fix the Formula Illinois campaign. For more, watch video of our Capitol press conference today here.***

We are grateful to the legislators who displayed political courage in recent days by voting for SB6 and SB9 to provide additional revenue to enhance support of schools, especially those that have been historically underfunded. These legislators voted in the best interests of families in their district and all of Illinois. Passing this legislation is the only viable way to ensure schools will open on time this fall, and that students will be where they should—in the classroom. Thank you to the following legislators for doing what is right for kids and putting partisan politics aside.

We urge the House to override the Governor’s vetoes of SB6 and SB9 and enact a full budget for schools this year.

Thank you to the “yes” votes on SB9:
