Illinois' regional superintendents are expecting a paycheck soon, though it's still not clear where the money to pay them will come from.

Lawmakers will come back to Springfield on October 25th for the fall veto session. The General Assembly will then have to either override Governor Pat Quinn's veto of $11 million dollars that was supposed to go to the regional superintendents, or approve legislation to pay the superintendents from local tax dollars.

Rock Island County Regional Superintendent Tammy Neurhoff doesn't care which, as long as she's paid.

The governor's office wants to use money from the Personal Property Replacement Tax to pay the regional superintendents. But that would mean less money for counties, park districts, and local school districts.
