SPRINGFIELD - The first week of fall veto session has come and gone, and there hasn't been any action on some of the state's biggest issues. Lawmakers cut their first week short because they said they didn't have anything else to do. That comes as a big shock to a lot of people since there are a number of key issues the Governor and others are pushing for. The biggest, of course, is pension reform. But there has been zero talk of a fix. Experts say politically speaking it doesn't matter if lawmakers pass something now or wait until spring. Lawmakers have next week off and are scheduled to be back in Springfield for another three days at the beginning of November.
