Speaker Michael J. Madigan released the following statement Friday:
“In three days of special session, Democrats and Republicans have taken significant steps forward under extraordinary circumstances. Working together, we have passed bipartisan protections for first responders, nurses, and other essential workers – with the support of both business and labor. We have continued our work toward a state budget and voted to secure funding that will ensure vital services like health care, education, and resources for those facing layoffs and furloughs are met.
“When committing ourselves to this session, we acknowledged that the work before us would take at least three days. We must continue our work to provide relief and support to all Illinois communities and the people of Illinois affected by this unprecedented crisis. The House will convene tomorrow to continue our work.”
*** UPDATE *** The Senate will convene at 10 tomorrow morning.
