An email from State Senator Karen McConnauhay:
The forum, which will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., will feature experts on various education funding reform proposals who will provide insight as to how these proposals affect our students and our property taxes. I hope you will be able to join us!
As the spring session continues, your input continues to be vital to the work I do. Please contact me or my office with questions or concerns you may have, and make sure your voice is heard in Springfield! You can also visit my legislative website at http://senatormcconnaughay.

McConnaughay to Host Ed Funding Forum April 16
Building on the success of the Senate Bill 16 forums from last fall, Sen. McConnaughay and Sen. Pam Althoff will partner to host a community forum April 16 in Algonquin to discuss the status of education funding reform in Illinois.
“Last fall, we started a dialogue in the suburbs about the issue of education funding, and this spring we want to continue to work toward a real, meaningful overhaul of how we fund education in Illinois,” said McConnaughay. “This year’s forum focuses on two new proposals, Senate Bill 1 – the new version of last year’s Senate Bill 16 – and the Illinois Vision 20/20 policy platform, and how they would affect suburban students and taxpayers.”
