Concealed Carry Override and Pension Reform Discussion Expected For Special Session


Illinois lawmakers will once again spend part of their summer vacation in Springfield this week.

 

A special session has been called for Tuesday to consider an override of Governor Pat Quinn’s amendatory veto of concealed carry legislation.

 

That’s the only item officially on the agenda, but House Speaker Mike Madigan has warned members to be prepared to spend more than one day in town.

 

The legislature is also under pressure to finalize a pension reform plan.

 

A bipartisan committee on that issue meets today in Springfield, but has already said it won’t meet Quinn’s deadline of Tuesday to reach a final compromise.
