Rauner Willing To Compromise on CPS

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM 890 News

(CHICAGO) Gov. Bruce Rauner is cracking open the door to a compromise to give Chicago Public Schools the millions he vetoed last week.

On Thursday, Rauner vetoed more than $200 million for CPS pensions. He blamed Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) for welching on a deal to exchange it for state pension reform. Now Rauner is arguing, let’s try again.

“I am perfectly willing, happy to, have that CPS pension changes or different ways of funding, be part of our pension negotiations that we are still having and still encouraging,” Rauner said. “Again, the Speaker is resisting, the Speaker is delaying.”

Rauner is also calling on Democrats to do what they won’t do, drop their lawsuit to get paid.
