“For over 20 years, schools in Chicago and the Southwest Suburbs have been shortchanged by the most inequitable formula in the country. Today, we took a step to end that inequity,” Cunningham said. “This bill will provide more equitable funding and for the first time, provide a path for property tax relief in districts with high tax rates.”

The legislation, Senate Bill 1947, passed the Senate today and awaits the governor’s signature to become law.
