Budget Override Vote Expected Tomorrow
(Springfield, IL) — The next budget showdown is coming tomorrow after the Illinois House adjourned today without taking a vote to override Governor Rauner’s veto of the spending and tax plan passed over the weekend. Too few House members were present today to hold a session, but a spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan says the House will convene Thursday at 1:30 for an override vote. For it to pass, Madigan and the House Democrats will need the support of the same 15 Republicans who voted for the budget package Sunday night.
