Lawmakers return to session on Tuesday for the first time since May.
Gov. JB Pritzker has only issued a few vetoes in his five years in office, but this summer he vetoed or amended six bills. While the fall veto session during most of his tenure has been marked by lawmakers tackling other issues, lawmakers could reconsider some of Pritzker’s vetoes this week.
Other issues on the table include the hotly debated Invest in Kids scholarship program, the ability for legislative staff to unionize and maps for Chicago’s elected school board districts. The General Assembly will meet Tuesday through Thursday this week and then return for three more days on Nov. 6-9.
