Madigan Forming School Funding Task Force

Governor Bruce Rauner took a shot at fixing Illinois’ schools, and now the state’s most powerful Democrat is taking his turn. House Speaker Mike Madigan yesterday announced he’s forming a task force to look at how to pay for education in the state. The announcement comes just weeks after Governor Rauner’s task force issued a report that came-up short. Madigan says his task force will answer the questions that the governor’s panel skipped.
