Senate Bill 16
The State of Illinois has been looking at ways to change education funding, which has remained unchanged since 1997.  Senate Bill 16 (SB16) has come from that effort.  If enacted into law, SB16 will make sweeping changes in how the state funds education and those changes will have a significantly negative impact on School District 105.  Please click below to learn more about Senate Bill 16 and how to influence this legislation.
