Even though there are only two weeks left in the scheduled legislation session, Illinois lawmakers are taking the weekend off. Both the House and Senate adjourned for the weekend, leaving a number of major issues still hanging.
The Senate had been expected to take up a controversial concealed carry bill that is opposed by the gun lobby, but did not vote on it before senators headed for home. There’s no word on when that bill might be called.
Major budget and pension questions are also still unresolved with the clock ticking toward the end of the month.
