2016 Digest of legislation

Descriptions of bills passed this spring that are now on the governor’s desk are summarized in the 2016 edition of Digest of Bills Passed

The IASB Governmental Relations Department prepares this publication for the Illinois Statewide School Management Alliance, containing a list of education-related bills that were approved by the legislature during the spring session. The legislation included is categorized by topic and bill number, with each containing a brief summary of the proposal.

The Digest of Bills Passed is intended to provide local school officials with the necessary information to advocate for or against initiatives that the governor will be considering in the coming weeks. It is suggested that board members and school leaders contact the governor’s office regarding any bill that may impact or influence local education decisions.

The publication, which is available online, will be mailed to IASB member districts in late June.
