* The Senate was originally scheduled to return to town on October 6th. But, as I told subscribers earlier today, those plans were changing. And now they’re official

That’s the same day the House is scheduled to be back in town.

    I wonder if the lights in the Capitol will be working that day. I think the disconnection notices have been sent.

    Looks to be a slow month on the Capitol Fax blog.


  20. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Monday, Sep 28, 15 @ 3:53 pm:

    State government operated for a long time without electricity. Legislators got it too good now days. Quill feathers and bottles of ink can be shared on the House floor too. It will be fun to do voice votes on the floor, instead of just pushing buttons.

  22. - sal-says - Monday, Sep 28, 15 @ 4:10 pm:

    Hi, Rich.

    That schedule! As you can see those characters in the GA continue to stall and oppose progress in The Governot’s Turnaround Agenda which will benefit of those not in need.

    Just more of the same non-governing, as we’ve all gotten use to over the last 9 months. We continue to believe that the way to get attention in IL is to destroy the fabric of the State.

    With warmest personal regards,
    ck

    In or out of session we still accomplish nothing. And get paid the same too.

    CAT guys pay attention!

    Sorry folks, the Senate’s closed. The moose out front should have told you.

    survey !! what/who’s can is being kicked down the road


  45. - Any Mouse - Monday, Sep 28, 15 @ 7:09 pm:

    Question: What event will actually force a deal?

    Is it running out of cash, or that vendors quit advancing goods and services?

    If the state is taking goods and services from vendors without a budget is this borrowing without authorization?

    It the mutual strategy to wait until something much more major breaks and see where the blame is apportioned? (Not that things aren’t already broken.)

    I find the lack of seriousness amazing.

    If you are from a public or private union household Rauner is the only man on the face of the earth to make Madigan look almost human.


  54. - The Dude Abides - Monday, Sep 28, 15 @ 10:24 pm:

    Here’s the plan: Sometime around the end of October the Governor will invite the legislative leaders in for a meeting. The Governor will say that if they pass his turnaround agenda he will be ready to work with them on the budget. The leaders leave the meeting and report that there’s no progress on the budget.
