Senate Democrats send more money to CPS at expense of rest of state

More than $45 million additional dollars is now projected to head to Chicago Public Schools at the expense of the vast majority of school districts throughout the state. This, after Democratic majorities in the House and Senate overrode the Governor’s Amendatory Veto of Senate Bill 444 on Jan. 31, making it law.

Senate Bill 444 made technical changes to the evidence-based school funding law (Senate Bill 1947) that dealt with how Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) is calculated in the formula.
