Sen. Barickman talks school funding as Democrats plan veto override

PEORIA - State Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) discusses school funding reform with Central Illinois On the Record before heading to Springfield for session.

Democrats are expected to use their supermajority to override Gov. Bruce Rauner's amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1, which reforms the school funding formula.

Schools were scheduled to receive general aid checks from the state Thursday, but did not because of the impasse.
