Pensions and Gambling May Not Be Addressed by General Assembly This Week


A few high profile issues could come up for a vote this week as lawmakers return to Springfield for a shortened two-day wrap-up of the fall veto session.

 

Those include a bill to allow illegal immigrants to obtain Illinois drivers licenses, and a measure that would legalize medical marijuana in the state.

 

But other major issues, including pension reform and gambling expansion, probably won’t surface until January.

 

Lawmakers will have a small window of time between the first of the year and January 9th, when the new legislature is sworn in.

 

During that time, it will only take a simple majority to pass bills, and lame-duck lawmakers may be willing to provide votes on more controversial measures.
