LAWMAKERS ARE DUE BACK IN SPRINGFIELD NEXT WEEK FOR THE FALL VETO SESSION. 

 

THE SIX-DAY VETO SESSION BEGINS TUESDAY, WITH A FEW ITEMS ALREADY ON THE DOCKET. THE LEGISLATURE IS EXPECTED TO TAKE UP NEWLY DRAWN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT MAPS, AS WELL AS A CORRECTION TO THE CLEAN ENERGY BILL THAT WAS JUST PASSED LAST MONTH. THE CHANGE WOULD ENSURE THE FOUR THOUSAND DOLLAR REBATE FOR BUYING AN ELECTRIC CAR APPLIES TO ALL OF ILLINOIS SAYS GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER.

 

 

THERE’S ALSO TALK OF POSSIBLY NIXING THE STATE’S PARENTAL NOTIFICATION ACT FOR ABORTIONS. GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER WAS ASKED FOR HIS THOUGHTS ON THAT AT AN UNRELATED PRESS CONFERENCE MONDAY.

 

 

ANOTHER TOPIC MAY BE THE STATE’S HEALTH CARE RIGHT OF CONSCIOUS ACT, WHICH HAS BEEN CITED BY SOME IN HOPES OF AVOIDING THE COVID-19 VACCINE MANDATE FOR CERTAIN WORKERS.
