Rep. Olsen Reacts to Cancellation of Veto Session Day

Springfield lawmakers cut the first week of veto session short today after House Speaker Michael Madigan cancelled a scheduled Thursday session day. Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) said he was pleased that legislative business was conducted on Wednesday, but disagreed with the decision to send lawmakers home until the next scheduled veto session day on Tuesday, November 29. “Today was a productive day on the House Floor, as we took action on several Senate Bills and resolutions and addressed bills that were vetoed by the Governor earlier this year,” said Olsen. “However, it did not seem appropriate to send us home when the State of Illinois still has no budget and while many other significant issues remain. I hope when we return in two weeks we can work together toward a balanced budget and have that document in place before the current stopgap measure expires at the end of December.”
