SPRINGFIELD- Assistant Majority Leader Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood) released the following statement following the Senate’s approval of legislation that would provide equity in the way the state funds education:

“The legislature was able to come together through bipartisan compromise to approve a plan that fixes our worst-in-the-nation school funding formula. While there are aspects in this proposal that will need revision, I refuse to continue denying our children a quality education.

“We are closer than ever to enacting a measure that provides equity for all children by putting dollars where they are most needed. I will continue working to make education more accessible and fair on every level, and I am glad we were able to take a significant step toward that goal today.”
