Some stuff gets done, like marijuana, sports gaming and the FY20 budget. The tax amendment and capital bill go to OT, where both will be approved before July 4th, which might be celebrated as Acceptance Day in Springfield.
The Latino caucus holds firm and stops a thing or two. The Lt. Governor gets the census from Secretary of State. Marijuana doesn’t pass. Governor Pritzker ends up battered. Major staff shifts in the summer.
Agree with Oswego Willy on all but maybe the progressive tax. I can see Pritzker pushing hard to get it passed with the budget to make it seem like a more solid victory than it would if he needs to whip votes for an extra week.
Worried about the kindergarten age change bill 2075 still. It looks like the education committee skipped on voting on the bill though and it has been re-referred to the rules committee. Isn’t that where bills normally go to die?
