“Schools like Waukegan needed certainty and stability in funding,” State Senator Terry Link (D-Vernon Hills) said. “Unfortunately, the governor’s plan relies on poor math and hammering communities that are promoting economic development. We need a system that is stable and provides communities with the resources we need. That plan is Senate Bill 1.”

The measure would include an increase of $28 million for Lake County schools when compared to last year.
