* 12:36 pm - The governor has called two more special sessions.
- Special Session 3 will convene Saturday at 2 pm and will “address the funding of the State Employees Retirement System.” The proclamation can be downloaded here.
- Special Session 4 will convene Sunday at 2 pm and will “address the funding of the Teachers Retirement System of Illinois.” That proclamation is here.
So much for the dream of an early Saturday session followed by a late Sunday session.
* 2:24 pm - There seems to be a disagreement about who can set the time of the special sessions. Madigan has told the House GOP that he wants to come in at 10 on Saturday and 4 on Sunday, the guv’s times notwithstanding.
* 2:54 pm - The governor has asked for a leaders meeting tomorrow at noon.
