DEMAND A VOTE on SB 2404!

6/14/2013

Speaker Madigan has filed an amendment to SB 2404 that would delete everything in the bill and replace it with language identical to SB 1, the pension slashing bill that was rejected in the Senate by a vote of 16-42. The amendment is scheduled to be considered in committee on Tuesday, June 18.  As you know, there will be a special session of the General Assembly on Wednesday, June 19.

Senate President Cullerton’s spokesperson says the speaker should let the current version of SB 2404 be called for a vote in the House

Furthermore, Phelon said, the president still thinks House members should get to vote on the Senate version as it had "passed overwhelmingly" in the upper chamber in the session.
The We Are One coalition agrees and will continue to push for State Representatives to have the opportunity to represent their constituents by voting on the Senate-approved version of SB 2404.
