Rauner called lawmakers to Springfield this week for three days of a special session to deal with the issue, but with no bill to act on and no negotiations occurring, he's spent time blasting Cullerton and Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan of Chicago for holding up the process. "I'm just asking for a meeting guys, I'm not trying to be confrontational". "But until then, the state is not better off for it, and he is not a very good governor." he said.

"The governor will fix the problems of senate bill one and schools will be able to receive their funding and open on time", said Republican State Sen.
