    Joe Lyons in the “Chair”…

    Who is NOT going to miss that?


  2. - Rudykzooti - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 12:42 pm:

    Maybe they need to go and watch Lincoln to see how to get something done…


  3. - Dirty Red - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 12:59 pm:

    Will there be audio/video of the House today? ILGA Web site still says they are not in session today. Senate A/V is active.


  4. - Roadiepig - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 12:59 pm:

    Couldn’t even meet for three days? What a joke!


  5. - Dirty Red - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 1:12 pm:

    Issue resolved.


  6. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 1:18 pm:

    ===Couldn’t even meet for three days?===

    PQ only vetoed a few bills.


  7. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 1:38 pm:

    Rich, is this it, or will they be back next week?


  8. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 1:39 pm:

    –The #CookCounty #Pension Fund actuary projects that the County Pension Fund will become insolvent in 2038 or in 26 years–

    So which is it? 2038 or 26 years, lol.


  9. - Ahoy! - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 2:18 pm:

    I didn’t get to see it all, did Topinka give any solutions on the unpaid bills or just come to to do nothing to solve the problem?


  10. - CircularFiringSquad - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 3:38 pm:

    JBT likes to complain too much is spent, but never gets enough time to hand out a list of what to stop spending on….give her more time.


  11. - Anon - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 4:34 pm:

    Kudos to the house and senate for recognizing Tpr Deatherage. He was a great guy and excellent officer. Will be missed.


  12. - Norseman - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 4:41 pm:

    I don’t recall any real discussion on the legal impact of HJR 45. My take is that it gives the negotiators, especially the Governor, a clear message that it is the General Assembly’s intent that the contract should follow the constraints outlined in the resolution. Since resolutions don’t have the force of law, the negotiators could ignore HJR 45 and enter into a contract that goes beyond the scope of the resolution. However, presuming the resolution passes, that wouldn’t be smart on Quinn’s part. I would expect the solons would use the resolution as the moral authority for not funding the terms of the contract. Am I missing something?


  13. - Steve Brown - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 4:53 pm:

    News Flash
    House Democratic Caucus select Speaker Madigan as the Democratic Leader for the 98th GA


  14. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 4:55 pm:

    Word, actuaries are belt and suspenders kinda guys.


  15. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 5:40 pm:

    Can anyone just hit a button on their computer and give us the borrowing plan, at whatever amount, over any number of years, that saves us money?

    This ain’t heavy lifting, folks. It’s not a philosophical discussion.

    There is, in this era of low-interest rates, a point where a certain amount of borrowing over a certain number of years makes sense to pay old bills.

    And it pumps a lot of money to local vendors, to boot.

    It’s lunacy to pretend that all “borrowing” is bad. You’re already borrowing from vendors. It’s a matter of who gets how much juice.

    How hard is that to understand?


  16. - Roadiepig - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 7:35 pm:

    Rich- you are right. I guess all the rumors of bringing up new issues were just smoke. Better to wait until January, so they can ram things through with a simple majority using the lame-o ducks


  17. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 10:01 pm:

    “Three Putt” Tom Cross was elected… unanimously… as Irrelevent Leader?

    To the HGOP Caucus, I thank you!


  18. - Norseman - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 10:41 pm:

    Willy, try not to take it too hard. I suspect nobody else wanted the title of Mr. Or Madam Irrelevant.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 27, 12 @ 11:04 pm:

    I just hope “Three Putt” understands …

    Tom asked to be Irrelevent Leader. I won’t let him forget.

    Any Staff changes? Is not ONE person going to take any blame for being made Irrelevent?

    - Norseman -, actually with Tom Cross back, this will be even more fun.


  20. - Apple user - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 7:54 am:

    Rich, the session feed bleeds over into other columns when viewing with an iPad or iPhone


  21. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 8:41 am:

    Explain, please.


  22. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 8:47 am:

    Wait, I see it now. I’ve asked ScribbleLive to look into the problem. Thanks much for pointing it out.
