ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Lawmakers are heading back to the Capitol City Tuesday for day one of the fall veto session.
Typically, the General Assembly uses this time to override the governor on bills, but some new bills could also be debated. They include gun laws, in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre, and possibly a “capital plan” to help increase funding for road projects.
Lawmakers will try to override the governor on Attorney General Madigan’s student loan bill of rights and the debt transparency bill vetted by Comptroller Mendoza.
Another possible override is a bill requiring life insurance companies to take more steps to make sure benefits are paid to beneficiaries.
