education fundingState Sen. Napoleon Harris, D-Harvey, issued the following statement Wednesday  morning after voting in favor of a comprehensive P-12 funding package that passed the Illinois Senate 37-19.


“Our schools have waited in uncertainty for too long, wondering whether or not they would be able to open their doors this fall,” Harris said. “We approved this plan to fulfill our duty to Illinois students and to take the first step in compromising with the governor on a budget.


“It is unfortunate that the Senate did not approve funding for human services and universities tonight, but this fight is not over. I’m determined to return and debate in favor of full funding for these essential services that support our most promising students and protect our most vulnerable citizens.”
