Belleville News-Democrat, July 9, 2017
I am writing in response to Pete Hill’s letter from June 21. SB1 is a win for every school district in our region and in the state. A report released last week by the nonpartisan Center for Tax and Budget Accountability states that SB1 disproportionately aids downstate schools as they are less adequately funded, on average, versus the rest of the state. With the new dollars in SB1, our districts will be able to maintain, sustain and improve the great schools we have.
