Unresolved Issues Remain as Legislative Session Nears Adjournment

With just five days remaining until the General Assembly is scheduled to adjourn the spring legislative session on May 31, several controversial issues remain unresolved.

Lawmakers have not yet acted on issues like an overhaul of Illinois income tax system from a flat to a graduated tax system, legalization of recreational cannabis, sports betting, or a much-needed capital plan. Additionally, lawmakers must approve a budget for Fiscal Year 2020 in the remaining days.

Throughout the coming days, Senate Republicans will continue to meet on these issues and hope to resolve them in a matter that is in the best interests of the state and their constituents.
