General Assembly aims to wrap May 31

May 13, 2011
With a scheduled May 31 spring session adjournment, the Illinois General Assembly faces a sizable agenda. In addition to crafting the 2012 fiscal budget, lawmakers also are contemplating reforms to education, pension and retiree health care, and worker’s compensation; ComEd rate changes; and revamped boundaries for new legislative districts.
Senators also are debating House Bill 880, which would create a Dealer Recovery Trust Fund, to help those harmed when dealers close without settling liens on trade-ins. The fund would be endowed by costlier dealer licenses.
