Brauer Skeptical That Veto Session Will Accomplish Much

A local representative doesn’t have much hope that anything will get accomplished during the upcoming fall veto-session.


Rep. Rich Brauer tells the 970 WMAY News Feed there isn’t much that will be brought for a vote, including a pension fix.


With a bi-partisan pension panel still not on the same page for a potential fix, Brauer says he’s uncertain there will be a vote.


He also reiterates what Senate President John Cullerton says about the pension problem, that it’s not as big a crisis as has been reported.


Brauer says the legislature needs to work on the problem of "paying for past sins" of shifting money out of the pensions.


As for other issues, Brauer says there likely won’t be a vote for same-sex marriage either. The legislature meets for their fall session Tuesday.
