LEGISLATURE TO RETURN TO SESSION

The Illinois General Assembly has scheduled a return to Springfield after a two-month hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic. Both the House of Representatives and the Senate will reconvene session next Wednesday through Friday, May 20-22. In order to comply with social distancing orders, the House will meet at the Bank of Springfield convention center and the Senate will meet in the Capitol in the Senate chambers. A list of specific safety precautions was sent to all General Assembly members.

The full IASB Legislative Report 101-16 includes topics to be included in the session, including discussion of the coronavirus pandemic and results such as labor-pushed employee rights initiatives and codification of some of the education-related executive orders and guidance documents. 

IASB Governmental Relations Directors Deanna Sullivan and Zach Messersmith previewed the legislature's return last week.
