Illinois misses school aid payments, finds temporary relief in Categorical grants

Governor Rauner signs new organ donor bill

Governor Rauner signs new organ donor bill

The state of Illinois missed school aid payments for the first time in state history.

Representative Barbara Flynn Currie authored the amendment to the plan, but says she is not a fan of what the governor did to it.

The State Comptroller is sending $429 million in mandated Categorical grants.

The Drive for Life Act allows 16- and 17-year-olds to give consent to be organ donors when they receive their Illinois driver's license or ID. "We would spend down and keep out school open until we can't open any longer".

Lawmakers are due back in Springfield this weekend to take up the matter.
