This morning, Chance the Rapper met with IL governor Bruce Rauner to discuss the funding of Chicago Public Schools.
CNN has reached out to the Republican governor's office and the rapper's representatives but, so far, requests for comment have not been returned.
The West Chatham native and three-time Grammy victor left the Thompson Center saying he felt "flustered" Friday, after a 30-minute conversation with the governor that centered on funding for the Chicago Public Schools. "And, you know, the kids are on the table right now", Chance said.
Senators partially advanced a bipartisan package that's come to be known as the "grand bargain" last week, but then stopped after Democrats, including Senate President John Cullerton, accused Rauner of interfering. "If we stood together, Chance, I have some power".
United Kingdom asset managers Standard Life, Aberdeen discuss merger
In its 2016 annual report, Aberdeen reported outflows of almost £33bn (€38bn) in the 12 months to the end of September. Mr Gilbert added: "If you divide it into components it is interesting".
The two men were initially scheduled to meet on Wednesday but had to reschedule due to storms in southern IL. He told reporters he would be monitoring developments and later wrote on Twitter, "The fight has just begun". "Monday morning I'll have a plan".
"We need to give notice to principals, to teachers, to parents who need to make plans", said David DeBruin, a Jenner & Block attorney who flew in from Washington, D.C., to represent the Chicago Board of Education in court. "I'm eager to hear his ideas".
A product of CPS himself, the Chicago rapper sought answers regarding the governor's recent decision to veto $215 million in funding for the city's school system.
"Looking forward to hearing your ideas, too", the Republican governor responded Monday afternoon. The musician won the award for best new artist, among other categories. "IL is proud that you're one of our own", Rauner tweeted on February 13.
Jamie Carragher delivers verdict on Chelsea's 2-1 win at West Ham
With twice as much to do, West Ham continued with their aerial assault, not exactly subtle but the best weapon they could devise. Some teams can be guilty of over-complicating the game, but Chelsea under Conte just do the simple stuff brilliantly.
The meeting however, wasn't as productive as Chance would've hoped. "That's the reason I ran for governor".
The governor quickly tweeted back and set up a meeting for Wednesday, which was postponed in the aftermath of tornadoes that struck the towns of downstate Ottawa and Naplate Tuesday night.
"I'm not a politician, I'm here because I'm a dad", explained the 23-year-old rapper. He voiced his support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and led hundreds to an early voting location last November following a free concert.
