Take action to ensure schools open on time

Schools may be at risk of not opening on time in the fall, affecting thousands of students, if the Senate does not immediately send a school funding bill to the Governor for his action. Illinois Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti is encouraging Illinoisans to get involved by signing her petition urging the Senate to send SB1 at once to the Governor. 

After a bill passes both the House and Senate it should be sent to the Governor to sign, or veto. However in this case, SB1 was held by the Senate in a parliamentary move to prevent the Governor from taking action. This move has the potential of creating chaos and crisis for our schools and Illinois families.

Tell the Senate to release the bill and prevent the unnecessary stress and pressure on our families by signing the petition.
