Sunday is last day of Legisatlive session

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2015

   One day remains in the 2015 spring legislative session for the Illinois General Assembly. The main task remaining would be for lawmakers and the governor to reach an agreement toward a budget, although both the Democrat-controlled legislature passed a spending plan which – like the budget Gov. Bruce Rauner proposed in February – is billions of dollars out of balance. Rauner Friday said he’ll know an agreement on a budget and his other priorities when he sees it but hasn’t said what will happen if there isn’t one.
    Action Saturday included House passage of a pension bill meant to save millions of dollars for the city’s police and fire pension funds; House passage of a bill adding post-traumatic stress disorder to the list of illnesses covered by the state’s medical marijuana program; Senate passage of a civics education requirement in schools; Senate passage of a police reform package; and Senate passage of a bill meant to address the state’s heroin problem.
    The House and Senate are expected in at noon Sunday.
