Another Sunday Deadline: Showdown in the Illinois General AssemblyMay 28, 2015
While the Illinois General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn by this Sunday, it is widely expected that the session will not conclude and we will go into overtime. Gov. Bruce Rauner has demanded passage of his "Turnaround Agenda" before he will negotiate on the budget (see May 25, 2015 ILA E-Newsletter for details). The Democratic legislative leaders have refused to support any of the Governor's agenda and demanded that the budget be separately negotiated. As usual, ILA will continue to monitor these developments and issue a Call to Action, if appropriate.
