House Committee Will Revote On Obama Library Funding


An Illinois House committee will hold another vote on a proposal to set aside $100 million to bring the Obama Presidential Library to Chicago. 

 

The measure was approved by a House committee last week on a unanimous vote… but only because Democrats on the committee used a procedural move to use an attendance roll call from the previous day as the official vote tally on the library funding.  That resulted in some Republican lawmakers being listed as “yes” votes, even though they weren’t in attendance. 

 

Speaker Mike Madigan’s spokesman Steve Brown says the revote coming up on Monday should put the controversy over the vote to rest once and for all.  But critics still object to the high price tag for the project.
