Lawmakers left the fall veto session with little action on ethics reform.
That leaves Republican lawmakers frustrated as they wanted quick action on a number of bills they proposed. But they are left wanting for the next few months as big reforms have been left for later. In the place of new laws is a commission to study the problem and recommend changes. Democrat Governor JB Pritzker says this isn’t a problem that is going to be wallpapered over by yet another commission.
Pritzker says the work was too important that it couldn’t be accomplished in three days.
