The Illinois House plans to end its current session this week.
There is still no state budget and there is unlikely to be one.
The Senate has voted for an income tax increase, but the increase in new funding is unlikely to get House approval before Wednesday.
Meanwhile the House version of SB1, the education funding bill which in the House is called HB2808, still threatens special education.
As I have reported, HB2808 is sponsored by Rep. William Davis, Robert W. Pritchard , Linda Chapa LaVia, Al Riley, Emanuel Chris Welch, Sue Scherer, Camille Y. Lilly and Will Guzzardi.
The bill adopts what they call an Evidence Based Model.
One sponsor of the bill told me that it contemplates lots of new school funding.Illinois House Democrats threaten special education funding with HB 2808. | Fred Klonsky:
HB 2808 will do to the rest of the state’s special education what already happens in Chicago. | Fred Klonsky - http://wp.me/p4C3g-lb2 via @fklonsky
