Rauner warned that if the bill doesn't get to his desk soon, schools may not open as scheduled in the fall.
In fiscal 2016, some 119 school districts relied on state money for 50 percent to as much as 71.5 percent of their budgets, according to Illinois State Board of Education data.
Chicago's school communities continue to confront risky funding shortfalls, an ongoing threat from Governor Rauner to "amendatorily" veto SB1 - and the refusal of Mayor Emanuel to address CPS' fiscal chaos with a short-term infusion of responsible city revenue streams instead of costly borrowing schemes.
The bill, which revamps Illinois' school funding system, was passed in May by the Democratic-controlled General Assembly, which has yet to send it to the Republican governor for approval.

"The point of this school reform bill is to help low income students across the state, including those in Chicago, get the education they deserve - not to bailout CPS's mismanaged teacher pension system". Melinda Bush, D-Grayslake. In a written response to the governor's plan for an amendatory veto, CPS calls it illegal and a stunt.
Votes in both the House and Senate for the measure's passage in May fell short of the three-fifths threshold required to override a veto. Mayor Rahm Emanuel said it's unfortunate that Rauner is pursuing a political path rather than a productive one.
Emanuel has said Chicago schools will open September 5 as scheduled - regardless of what Rauner does. While CPS schools will open on time, there are others threatening not to open unless SB 1 is signed into law.
