Pass Illinois' Budget!

As of April 24, 2017 we have operated more than 22 months without a full state budget. The country's fifth-largest state has been operating with continuing appropriations and court-ordered spending, while the pile of unpaid bills grows to nearly $13 billion. The state has approved a partial budget for education and stopgap or band-aid measures for most everything else. This has meant frozen and reduced budgets at local government entities, community organizations, and education agencies that aim to support our families and all sectors of society. Without a budget we all suffer.

Illinois owes District 300 $17.4 million dollars. The time to #PassILBudget is now.

Residents and companies alike are not likely to stay or move to a state that has not passed a budget in nearly two years. This impasse hurts our current well being as well as our state’s economic future.

More than 390 school district superintendents, representing 1.3 million Illinois public school students from across Illinois, have signed on to support a statewide initiative called, “Pass Illinois' Budget!”

We are calling on members of the Illinois General Assembly and the Governor to do the following:

  • Immediately and with bipartisan support end the state budget impasse
  • Fix the state education funding formula and invest in students and schools, including higher education, throughout the state
  • Pay school districts what they are owed this year

Please join the effort and:

  • Use social media to share your budget concerns with the hashtag #PassILBudget.
  • Ask your friends, colleagues and community members to join our efforts.
  • Contact your local legislator at https://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/.

Thank you for your interest and advocacy on this issue. Together, we will stand up for our students and our future. Let’s all work together to #PassILBudget.
