Lawmakers were in session for one day last week, and one local lawmaker wants to be in session through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
After the General Assembly adjourned to after the Thanksgiving holiday, Sen. Chapin Rose gives many reasons for need to stay in session through the holiday, one being the lack of participation from the House.
Sen. Rose indicates there will be repercussions if a budget is not passed by the end of the year. He wants lawmakers to work together to get something accomplished before the next term starts.
Sen. Rose hopes a budget can be reached so other important issues can be addressed, and not further prolonged. One being, the nuclear power legislation in Illinois.
