Some Republican lawmakers say the Illinois State House of Representatives may not have the votes to override Governor Bruce Rauner's veto of a school funding bill Wednesday.
The State Senate overrode Rauner's veto with one Republican joining Democrats. But in the House - the original bill passed 11 votes short of a veto-proof majority.
So Democrats would need Republican help.
Republican State Representative Steve Andersson broke from Rauner to pass a state budget - but says he won't this time on school funding.
"I don't see any other Republicans breaking on this issue right now. As time goes on, if there isn't a compromise and if schools downstate start not opening, that's a question you're gonna have to ask those representatives about how they feel about their districts."
If the House doesn't override Rauner - the bill fails and there's no backup plan to fund schools.
