Illinois Gov-elect Bruce Rauner talks to media after meeting with then U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House in WashingtonCHICAGO (Reuters) – Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner on Monday called for a special legislative session starting on Wednesday to secure a school funding system before classes start next month.

The Republican governor set a July 31 deadline for enacting a new funding formula without extra money for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) teacher pensions that was included in a bill passed by the Democratic-controlled legislature in late May.

“We must act now, which is why I’m calling lawmakers back to Springfield for a special session. Our schools must open on time,” Rauner said in a statement.

At a news conference earlier on Monday, Rauner accused Democrats who control the legislature of “playing political games” with the state’s approximately 2 million school children by not sending him the education funding bill.

    So is he merely wanting money to run the schools and increasing the money owed by the state for the teachers future pensions. Illinois unfortunately has Chicago in it. Probably the state would function quite well if they could wash it into the lake.

    I pray for you Governor, you are in the middle of the cesspool trying to fix the leak. I hope the people of Illinois will appreciate your efforts but I have a feeling you are not going to get what you need to do the job right.
