As the end of the current fiscal year rapidly approaches, Governor Pat Quinn is calling lawmakers back to Springfield on June 23.

Although there has not been substantial progress on resolving the state budget crisis, lawmakers are expected to address some technical changes to the capital infrastructure plan that must be made before the legislation can be signed into law.

SESSION WILL ALSO ALLOW FOR CONSIDERATION OF REFORMS

The Governor’s “call” for a special session is also broad enough to encompass critical structural and ethical reforms needed to move Illinois forward.

Because a special session can only address the issues laid out in the Governor’s proclamation calling the Legislature into session, it was important that the proclamation be broad enough to include key reforms needed to address the underlying causes of the gridlock that has become routine in Illinois over the last six years.
