Yet again, Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan and Governor Bruce Rauner are at odds. This time, over a constitutional amendment introduced by the Speaker. It may not matter -- the plan is dead if it doesn't advance Wednesday.
Above all else, Gov. Rauner, a Republican, says education comes first.
But apparently, he doesn't want to secure that with a constitutional guarantee.
His political foe, Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan wants the constitution to say adequate education funding is a fundamental right.
Rauner isn't on board.
