Officials are making available more than $11 million dollars of state relief. Governor Pat Quinn announced the city of Washington is getting the majority of those funds. The community will use the money to repair streets and sidewalks. It's part of an overall package to help local governments recoup some of the costs associated with storm cleanup.

Schools are getting less money even though the budget line for General State Aid has not changed.<br /><br />He says, &ldquo;They found a quieter, more politically-correct way to reduce that. You don&#39;t hear anybody talking about reducing the foundation level anymore. They&#39;re just not appropriating enough dollars to pay at that level so it automatically gets reduced.&rdquo;<br /> Wed, 08 Aug 2012 18:26:56 +0000 James Lenz 19616 at http://tspr.org Superintendent Says Lawmakers Not Up-Front on Cuts
