House fails to override Rauner veto

Posted by wlpo on September 2, 2015

House Speaker Michael Madigan and the Illinois House failed to override Governor Rauner’s veto of the much talked about SB 1229.  The bill would have cut out Rauner from the labor negotiations with state workers and allowed an arbitrator to work with AFSCME and determine a contract.  According to AFSCME Council 31 website,  it failed by 3 votes. AFSCME Council 31 said the Governor’s campaign of lies and intimidation lead legislators to vote against their constituents. Associated Press reported earlier that some Democrat lawmakers were wavering on the issue.
