Tough Decisions Ahead as Funding Shortfalls Impact Illinois State Board of Education

According to The State Journal-Register, Governor JB Pritzker shared a $52.7 billion family-friendly budget plan with the Illinois lawmakers. He expects the state to get $52.9 billion in money coming in leaving a small $298 million extra. Before there was a prediction of an $900 million shortfall so this is better news. Pritzker mentioned that some tough choices had to be made this time. For example, the Illinois State Board of Education had asked for $653 million more but will receive over $200 million less than that. It means they might have to manage with less money than they hoped for.
