Rauner Lays Out Education Plan
(Chicago, IL) -- Bruce Rauner says he'll boost education funding within the first year if he's elected governor but, he hasn't talked about how he plans to do that. He says the specifics need to be worked out with lawmakers. What he will say is that he wants to freeze property taxes, which provide a nice chunk of funding for schools all across the state. Rauner also wants to start rolling back the income tax hike. That'll take billions out of the state's bank account and if you ask Governor Quinn what he thinks about that, he'll say schools and students will ultimately be hurt by the lost revenues.
