The General Assembly adjourned on May 31st without a State budget. Since then session has been cancelled by Speaker Madigan three weeks in a row. Without appropriations from the State, many schools are in danger of not opening this fall. In May Republicans filed House Bill 6583 a clean, standalone education funding bill that increases school funding by $240 million dollars. Speaker Madigan has refused to release the bill from the Rules Committee.
