Illinois Cancels Veto Session due to the Surge in Coronavirus Cases
The Illinois Legislature canceled the veto session originally scheduled for this week and December 1-3, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
State lawmakers hope to meet in January, though no date has been set.
Generally, the veto session, a short session in the fall, is used to override bills that have been vetoed and resolve conflicts with the governor.
There are no vetoes to address this year, but lawmakers could address other matters.
The next General Assembly will be inaugurated on January 13, 2021.
Therefore, the veto session would have to take place before then if it is held.
