Trotter moves P-12 education funding in Senate (VIDEO)

trotter 053116Senator Donne Trotter (D-Chicago) championed a budget bill to ensure Pre-K and K-12 schools could open on time this year.

House Bill 2990 would provide a $75 million increase in funding for early childhood education and provide additional money for P-12 education.

 

 "We passed a education budget that would fully fund P-12 education, reach pension parity and create mechanisms to bring more dollars for low-income students," said Trotter, the bill's co-sponsor.

House Bill 2990 went to the House for their consideration; it failed to receive the votes needed to send the bill to the governor.
