A new Illinois House education funding reform panel has gone to work. 
House Speaker Mike Madigan says the 26 member panel, split evenly between Republicans and Democrats, will pickup where a commission formed by his political rival, Governor Rauner, left off. 
 
Legislation will be drafted this spring to try to overhaul the current funding model. The Rauner appointed commission made reccomendations on altering the school funding schematics but that effort didn't lead to legislation.
