In a State Journal-Register article today, reporter Doug Finke clearly explains the various bills passed or discarded by the Illinois House yesterday evening. Be sure to read the whole thing here.
Of the legislation mentioned in Finke's piece, the budget framework (HB 859) is the only one that will immediately head to the governor's desk. The tax amnesty proposal (SB 377), the slightly-amended Emergency Budget Act (SB 3660), and the pension borrowing scheme (SB 3514) all must go back to the Senate for concurrence. The upper chamber is scheduled to reconvene at 4 p.m. today.
