Event part of Manar’s Capitol on Your Corner program

DSC 3111rSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Andy Manar (D–Bunker Hill) is hosting a discussion on education funding and other state issues on November 14 in Livingston as part of his “Capitol on Your Corner” program.

The event is from 6 to 7:30 pm November 14 in the Livingston Senior Center at 601 Livingston Ave in Livingston.

Manar regularly hosts “Capitol on your Corner” events in communities across the 48th District to meet with constituents and answer questions about state government. But with Manar’s advisory committee currently reviewing school financing inequities, Manar anticipates the discussion at the November 14 event will focus on public education funding in Illinois.

“As the parent of three children in the Bunker Hill school district, I understand parents’ frustrations with funding cuts,” said Manar. “Funding public education is one of the most important responsibilities of state government, and we can do much better.”

Manar led the effort in the spring legislative session to create the Senate Advisory Committee on Education Funding (SR0431). The committee is tasked with conducting a comprehensive review of how K‐12 education is funded in Illinois and make recommendations for improvement.
