HOUSE MEETS AS SESSION SPILLS INTO JUNE
The Illinois House of Representatives met in session Thursday as the stalemate between Republican Governor Bruce Rauner and Democrat leadership has sent the legislative session into overtime. The Governor will not discuss a budget compromise with House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton until his business and taxation reform proposals are adopted.

The original scheduled adjournment date for the session was May 31.
