NOVEMBER 27, 2012
The Illinois General Assembly has returned to Springfield for the first week of our Fall Veto Session, the time when we meet to vote on whether to accept or override vetoes issued by the Governor since the adjournment of our spring session on May 31. This year, there are only seven substantive bills that were vetoed by the Governor.
The Speaker of the House has also scheduled a lame-duck session for the first week of January, when fewer votes will be needed to pass some of the more contentious items remaining on the agenda.
Check back here for continued updates throughout Veto Session and the lame-duck session in January leading up to the inauguration of the new 98th General Assembly on January 9, 2013.
