Illinois' regional school superintendents may not be getting paid for much longer.
That's the word from Democratic senator Mike Frerichs of Champaign. He says he expects Governor Pat Quinn will propose closing the regional offices of education during his budget address on Wednesday.
Quinn eliminated the superintendents' salaries over the summer, only to have them reinstated on a short term basis late last year. Most superintendents continued to work without being paid.
Frerichs said lawmakers want more of a long-term solution.
