Democrats Get Veto-Proof Majority of General Assembly After Tuesday's Election


Democrats have already controlled both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly, and the Governor’s Mansion.

 

But now the party has even more power in the wake of Tuesday’s election.

 

Democrats now hold veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate, taking advantage of the legislative district map they drew to snag a dozen seats from the Republicans.

 

But the new power for House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton could come at the expense of Democratic Governor Pat Quinn, who won’t be able to use the threat of a veto to pressure lawmakers.
