It was a long day on the floor yesterday as we awaited the “agreed” budget announced by Democrats. We considered several pieces of legislation throughout the day, including bills concerning law enforcement drones, constitutional lawsuits, Medicaid reimbursement rates, and more.
While most Illinoisans were sleeping, the Democrat budget passed the Senate and landed in the House for first reading just before midnight. We are expecting another late night tonight as we debate the passage of this $50 billion budget.
The House is scheduled to return to session tonight at 5:00 PM. Follow along live at https://ilga.gov/houseaudvid.asp
