Dist. 300 in Illinois to fight transportation funding cuts
from Daily Herald
Members of the Community Unit District 300 legislative committee recently met with eight out of their nine state senators and representatives to consider their next steps in regards to proposed transportation funding cuts. The discussion about transportation funding comes as the state budget deadline looms. A proposal by Gov. Pat Quinn would cut District 300's share of state dollars to $60,000 from $1.8 million, which would push the total loss in transportation funding over the last four years to $5.3 million, according to Chief Financial Officer Susan Harkin. That's half of what the district spends each year getting its students to school.
