*** UPDATED x1 - Madigan won’t say if he has the votes *** House not yet in agreement with Senate

Tuesday, Jun 28, 2016

* The Senate is set to run several approp bills this week. But the House Democrats are not ready to roll on everything yet. Here’s Greg Hinz

Cullerton also is expected to put votes on a separate “stop-gap” measure that would fund most of the rest of state government. A third bill would appropriate $1 billion for higher education, including Monetary Assistance program (MAP) grants for low-income students, and a fourth to take care of capital needs for the year. […]

While the Democratic plan almost certainly will clear the Senate, the House remains a question mark.

“We will be voting on elements of the stop-gap budget where progress has been made, and around this panic over road construction,” says Steve Brown, spokesman for Speaker Mike Madigan.

And education? “Hopefully that can be handled sooner rather than later,” Brown replied. “Discussions have been going on. I’m not sure things are finalized.”

Other sources were more optimistic.

There is “a conceptual agreement with the House,” with final action expected next week, said one insider.

Could get crazier before it gets saner.

*** UPDATE ***  This question was not worded properly. MJM will need a veto-proof majority before he can pass the K-12 bill. We’re in overtime, so the bill will require a three-fifths majority. Even so, it’s a problem for Madigan and he apparently needs more time to work his caucus…

    The grand compromise,thousand million

    If there could be an agreement that the governor will sign clean, that is the ideal.

    Since all parties refuse to see the ideal, which is still not the way to run a railroad, the continued running or proposing funding bills will be the order of the day, and until something gets to the Governor’s desk, no one knows how Rauner will approach a passed Stopgap funding “package”


  3. - Hostages 'R Us - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 9:38 am:

    Of course not. The leader of the house has slow walked every potential compromise agreement for months. Why would he suddenly agree to anything now?


  4. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 9:45 am:

    ===The leader of the house has slow walked…===

    Raunerite talking point noted.

    ===Raunerite talking point noted. ===

    It is a talking point. That doesn’t mean it’s untrue.

    === It is a talking point. That doesn’t mean it’s untrue. ===

    If its a GOP proposal, Republicans complain that Democrats won’t rubber stamp it.

    If its a Democratic initiative, Republicans complain that Democrats are rushing it through.

    Democrats turn on their t.v. and check their email every day to get news about how Republicans won’t even hold a hearing on the President’s Supreme Court nomination within a year.

    The governor has been kicking the can down the road on a comprehensive budget for more than a year, one million Illinoisans have lost critical services like counseling, but because the road builders might be inconvenienced, all of the sudden the GOP wants to declare a State of Emergency?

    The choices we make have consequences far beyond the here and now. Unfortunately for Republicans and their concrete-pouring friends, folks remember Ron Sandack’s heartless response when it was homeless youth and low-income elderly losing services, and they know what is going on in DC.

    OW always there to “whack a mole” anytime someone criticizes the Speaker.

    ===but because the road builders might be inconvenienced, all of the sudden the GOP wants to declare a State of Emergency?===

    Um, can you read? The House Democrats are voting on the transportation bill tomorrow. They’re the ones who decided this was more important than anything else - including K-12.


  9. - Anon221 - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 10:35 am:

    What is the HB transportation bill number? Negotiating www.ilga.gov to try and find it is a nightmare.


  10. - Doc Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 10:40 am:

    I’m no fan of Rauner, but it’s hard to blame him when the Democratic House and Democratic Senate can’t agree . . .


  11. - Anon221 - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 11:14 am:

    To the Update-

    So who will be voting??? More likely than not, on any bill in the overtime out of the House, some R’s are going to have to cross the aisle. I don’t see enough D’s seceding on R bills (Raunerite bills or otherwise). HB2038 was a GREAT show of unity, but Rauner has squashed that. Are we stuck until after the General then? Or will there be an “enough is enough” from the stronger backboned R’s to support worthy bills that HAVE been negotiated in good faith by the bipartisan work of the budgeteers???

    “We’re in overtime, so the bill will require a three-fifths majority.”
    ****
    Isn’t this a possibility on every overtime bill in the next couple of days??? For some, there will be easy votes. For others, for true bipartisanship, there will have to be aisles crossed and potentially facing the wrath of Rauner. Gridlock is a real possibility, K-12 school openings, or prisoner groceries, notwithstanding.


  13. - Huh? - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 12:52 pm:

    I’m telling you boss, I’ve counted noses and still can’t get to 71. I’ve been trying to get some of those other guys to flip and go along with the deal, but they just won’t go against his money. They’re scared of him.


  14. - Huh? - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 3:47 pm:

    I guess I am confused, yesterday 1.4% was running around saying the Dems were in agreement. Now, Madigan is trying to wrangle kittens er his caucus.


  15. - walker - Tuesday, Jun 28, 16 @ 5:21 pm:

    Take a breath. Everybody’s trying to figure out just what’s going on today, including the Leaders and Rauner. It will sort out mid-day tomorrow.
