    I thought the House was in continuous session?


  2. - Tie Your Shoes Kyle - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 2:54 pm:

    All I want for Christmas is a budget


  3. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 2:56 pm:

    “Gov. Rauner announces his weeks long vacation to his Montana ranch between the following dates;”


  4. - zatoichi - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 2:57 pm:

    No more working ‘night and day’?


  5. - old man - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:01 pm:

    This is inexcusable. They should be forced to at least pretend they are trying.


  6. - anon - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:05 pm:

    Waiting for Todog


  7. - Anon221 - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:05 pm:

    Well… the last line does provide some cover.


  8. - Cheswick - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:06 pm:

    Maybe Bruce Rauner can use the time to go on the house floor to practice twisting arms.


  9. - Ducky LaMoore - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:07 pm:

    The only two days Ken Dunkin had available…..


  10. - Mittuns - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:07 pm:

    Sweet. Any tennis tournaments that we could attend in the meantime?


  11. - Bogey Golfer - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:08 pm:

    =No more working ‘night and day’?=
    That was Quinn’s quote. Somebody has a time share which needs to be occupied.


  12. - Keyrock - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:09 pm:

    January here we come.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:10 pm:

    ===The only two days Ken Dunkin had available…..===

    Leader in the Clubhouse. Well played.

    “Caption?”

    “The only non-casual days until January 1 will be the following;”


  14. - A guy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:13 pm:

    Please use pencil when entering these session dates.


  15. - Liberty - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:17 pm:

    Deal with it Bruce.


  16. - Team Sleep - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:18 pm:

    “You know what rhymes with grass bowl?! Continuous session!”


  17. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:19 pm:

    “Great. Just great. Here I thought I could quietly crash and finally burn the state down unimpeded thru the December holidays…” - Fake Gov. Rauner


  18. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:31 pm:

    “Hey Lance, get Grass Bowl, we need a bulletin like the speaker puts out, where is our bulletin? Put at the top Turnin’ the state around.” -Fake Governor


  19. - nixit71 - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:42 pm:

    Look at that subtle coloring. The tasteful thickness. Oh my God, it even has a watermark.


  20. - Huh? - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:42 pm:

    1 day a month. Nice work if you can get it.


  21. - Bluefish - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:49 pm:

    To have more sessions would be to operate in the extreme. We in the House operate in the moderate.


  22. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:49 pm:

    Happy Halloween


  23. - Downstate GOP Faithless - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:50 pm:

    Pretty much the Speaker is willing to wait for January then?


  24. - ? - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 3:56 pm:

    Is that union printed?


  25. - AC - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:00 pm:

    The lack of progress stopped being funny shortly after the state of the state. Political nihilism must be what is uniting the state. The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!


  26. - Joe M - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:02 pm:

    I imagine if Rauner were to drop his anti-union, pro-business agenda and said he was ready to start working on the budget, that could speed things up.


  27. - AC - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:03 pm:

    * House schedule subject to change if the world doesn’t end on 9/23


  28. - AC - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:09 pm:

    * All dates listed are 2016, 2017 sessions will be announced at a later date


  29. - Lost in Chicago - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:15 pm:

    Someone’s not a national league baseball fan…that would be Game 3 of the NLCS.


  30. - Downstate GOP - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:26 pm:

    ==Is that union printed?==

    Has to be. They also believe that we should pay people large sums of money to take as long as humanly possible to do a job.


  31. - JS Mill - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:37 pm:

    S*!@% on a shingle.


  32. - Wordslinger - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 4:56 pm:

    Rep. Dunkin announced that if the price is right, he definitely can be somewhere else doing something very important on those days.


  33. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:00 pm:

    It depends if Rauner likes those days.

    If not, he’ll let Dunkin know.


  34. - walker - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:03 pm:

    Losing heart, at long last.

    This isn’t the government we deserve.

    Anybody want to hike the Appalachian Trail?


  35. - efudd - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:03 pm:

    Sure does look like Madigan is feeling the pressure.


  36. - efudd - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:04 pm:

    Cue Madigan covering the Stones-
    Tiiiiiiiime is on my side, yes it is.


  37. - walker - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:05 pm:

    Cannot even imagine this as part of a super-secret, ever-clever Madiganian plan. I’m out.


  38. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:05 pm:

    Rauner realizes — finally — that he has no use for his current crop of GOP’rs.

    All he needs is Dunkin. The logistics got really, really easy all of a sudden.


  39. - Slippin' Jimmy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:09 pm:

    In other news today, Illinois State government decided to phone in their budget sometime later this year if time allows.


  40. - Wensicia - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:10 pm:

    We’ll wait…No point in scheduling more until some drastic event ends the standoff.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:13 pm:

    “Dear Governor,

    Your move.

    With kindest personal regards, I remain.

    Sincerely yours,

    MICHAEL J MADIGAN
    Speaker of the House”


  42. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:15 pm:

    Prediction: no budget until after Jan 1.


  43. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:17 pm:

    “Hi Rich-

    Governor Rauner is meeting and talking with legislators all the time.

    All the time.

    Thanks!
    ck”


  44. - Thoughts Matter - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 5:54 pm:

    No point in scheduling sessions when 20% of the legislators won’t show up.


  45. - XDNR - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 8:02 pm:

    This signifies and announces that Rauner (I would call him Governor if in any way the man started to Govern) and his “Grass Bowl” staff are now on the “Hell Bound Train” (Savoy Brown) and Conductors Madigan/Culleron are not going to lend a hand! Would be a good musical Friday end Rich.


  46. - Anon - Thursday, Sep 24, 15 @ 10:42 pm:

    It’s urgent. So urgent.


  47. - Anonymous - Friday, Sep 25, 15 @ 7:01 am:

    Goldberg PAC up your caucus with green or when yellow becomes blue it turns into green you have quite the rainbow coalition


  48. - unclesam - Friday, Sep 25, 15 @ 7:25 am:

    Veto session officially canceled. See you next year!
