  1. - Smalls - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:20 pm:

    Chaos!


  2. - 47th Ward - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:23 pm:

    Denial, anger, bargaining and depression.

    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.


  3. - thoughts matter - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:24 pm:

    Various safe non controversial items passed or failed. All controversial items kept under wraps and voted on beginning at 6PM the last possible day that is needed to get them thru both houses.


  4. - Jvslp - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:24 pm:

    Several cancelled sessions and a capital bill at the very end


  5. - IlliniSpartan - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:27 pm:

    “Prediction? Pain…”

    -Clubber Lang


  6. - IlliniChamp - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:37 pm:

    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.


  7. - Dotnonymous - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:39 pm:

    I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road. - Stephen Hawking


  8. - Steve - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:41 pm:

    A few surprises but Pritzker will get a lot done. What the surprises will be is anyone’s guess.


  9. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:42 pm:

    OT on Capital Bill and Progressive Tax amendment.

    No gaming, budget passes on time, marijuana passes ON the 31st.


  10. - XonXoff - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:42 pm:

    Many constituents will bellyache online without once contacting their legislators office to tell them how they want them to vote.


  11. - OutOfState - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:55 pm:

    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.


  12. - wordslinger - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 3:59 pm:

    I would think Pritzker’s crew would insist on a graduated income tax vote before a capitol bill.

    I’d also think the new governor might understand better than the last guy the usefulness of his suite of veto powers as well.


  13. - DuPage Bard - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:08 pm:

    Amendment passes but not much else.


  14. - Donnie Elgin - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:09 pm:

    The weed bill will go up on smoke


  15. - Seats - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:12 pm:

    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?


  16. - RNUG - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:18 pm:

    Sturm und Drang


  17. - walker - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:20 pm:

    Pain, wonderment, confusion, anger, relief. Same as it ever was.


  18. - Obamas Puppy - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:21 pm:

    We will get out on time.


  19. - Montrose - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:28 pm:

    At least one of the big pieces will fall out. Which one, I don’t know, but something ain’t going to make it across the finish line. I agree that the capital bill and the Fair Tax get tied together.


  20. - A 400lb. Guy on a bed - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:33 pm:

    Whatever Priztker proposes, Republicans will complain about it.


  21. - Smitty Irving - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:36 pm:

    Same as before -
    “Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!” /s


  22. - Progressive Guy - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:39 pm:

    I think (hope) we pass the Marijuana bill so that we can increase freedom, revenues, and social justice. It should get done.

    I have almost no hope for the income tax.


  23. - TransitGuy - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:42 pm:

    Overtime. At least the infrastructure package.


  24. - Nova - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 4:46 pm:

    Sports betting and budget pass. Cannabis too soon to tell, but I think not. Tax and Capital plan in OT or Veto. Agree Pritzker comes out a bit worse for wear.


  25. - Illinois Resident - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 5:23 pm:

    Cannabis bill will pass if Pritzker plays hardball politics. If not, it is a toss up. Home grow will probably not pass. I hope I am wrong.


  26. - Tim - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 6:33 pm:

    More chaos. More games. That’s all these guys do good.


  27. - Enviro - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 7:41 pm:

    Progressive state income tax and Capital bill pass. Cannabis remains decriminalized but not legal except for medical purposes. Sports gambling bill is too weighted down and sinks.


  28. - Responsa - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 7:54 pm:

    White Sox will be playing .500 ball by then.

    Oh wait–you meant the legislative session? I’m not as optimistic about that.


  29. - It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 9:17 pm:

    @XonXoff

    Some constituents call their elected officials hoping for a response on badly-needed legislation to make headway, receive no response, and then proceed to bellyaching online.


  30. - the good ole days - Monday, May 13, 19 @ 10:35 pm:

    Many drinks will be served for the next 17 days


  31. - XonXoff - Tuesday, May 14, 19 @ 8:25 am:

    – Some constituents call their elected officials hoping for a response on badly-needed legislation to make headway, receive no response, and then proceed to bellyaching online. –

    With zero response that’s fair, IMHO. Much better than doing nothing and watching it play out.
