Preparations for second week of veto session

The Illinois General Assembly will convene on Tuesday, November 7 for the second week of its fall veto session. When in veto session, the House and Senate hear motions by members to override vetoes of bills passed previously by the two chambers. A three-fifths majority in both houses is required to override a veto. In addition, the General Assembly can consider end-of-year housekeeping chores, such as renewals of noncontroversial laws scheduled to sunset on January 1, 2018.

In some cases, new issues can come up before the General Assembly in veto session. These actions typically respond to urgent issues discussed by the press or public. The two chambers may take action in the coming week to further discourage sexual harassment.
