Longtime supporters of expanding gambling in Illinois say they'll soon have new legislation in the General Assembly. But the million-dollar question is whether Governor Pat Quinn might finally be willing to play along.
It's called veto session because it's when the General Assembly's supposed to consider legislation the governor rejected or changed. Theoretically, at least. Legislators WILL deal with measures nixed by Governor Pat Quinn - including statewide regulation of plastic bags, and a plan to let cancer treatment centers reject job applicants who smoke.
