State PreK-12 Budget agreement passed THANK YOU

Good afternoon!

 

Yesterday, Illinois lawmakers approved a partial spending plan.  It includes a full 2016-2017 year PreK-12 education agreement, the highway construction program, and a 6 month plan for colleges and human service programs.  Although I do not like the bailout provisions in it for the Chicago schools, I am relieved that State monies will be flowing to Illinois Schools for Fiscal Year 2017.  It is a peaceful feeling knowing that the Annawan CUSD 226 will have school for the entire 2016-2017 school year and know that we won’t be depleting our reserves to do it.

 

At this time, the Annawan CUSD 226 is projected to receive approximately $7,000 more in Fiscal Year 2017 from General State Aid than it did in Fiscal Year 2016.

 

This stopgap legislation literally is “just keeping the lights on” according to Democratic House Leader Barbara Flynn Currie.  To illustrate this, it was noted that current unpaid bills to the state total about $7 billion and, with current revenue streams, the state is spending about $500 million more than it takes in each month.  By the end of the calendar year, a total $10 billion pile of unpaid bills is possible, not counting bonded debt and unfunded pension system liability.

 

This November election will be interesting to say the least for seats that are up in the Illinois legislature.  After the election, the fall legislative veto session is scheduled for November 15, 16, 17, 29, 30 and December 1, 2016.  That will be an interesting time for the legislature as their 6 month spending plan will end on December 30, 2016.

 

Although I am relieved that we do have a FY 2017 Education Spending Plan, I predict that major implementation changes in the school funding formula, pension reform, state revenue souirces, etc., will take place during the next calendar year, and we may be looking at the same instability then as we have for the last year.

 

THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO CONTACTED LEGISLATORS AND ENCOURAGED THEM TO PASS A PREK-12 EDUCATION BUDGET!

 

Please call me with any questions you have.  Have a great July 4th weekend!
