Rauner vetoes cursive

Illinois Capitol News

ILLINOIS (WCIA) — An effort to require schools to put cursive back into the classroom was vetoed by Governor Bruce Rauner.

His veto message called the bill an “unfunded mandate” which requires schools to get more resources.

Supporters argue it’s important to keep cursive around for children to be able to sign their name and read the writing when looking at historical documents.
