Some Republican lawmakers say the Illinois State House of Representatives may not have the votes to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of a school funding bill tomorrow.
The State Senate overrode Rauner’s veto with one Republican joining Democrats. But, in the House, the original bill passed 11 votes short of a veto-proof majority. So Democrats would require assistance from Republicans.
State Rep. Steve Andersson, R-Geneva, broke with Rauner, voting to pass a state budget; but he said he won’t do the same for school funding.
