Big day likely in Illinois House today

There's almost a full House in Springhfield this morning -- 113 members, according to the attendanmce roll call -- so things are set up for a tax increase vote.

Except that there's still no legislation to consider. Not yet. Still concerns that the gigantic tax increase couldbe changed. We'lll see.

Also likely on today's agenda: workers comp reform bill.

Gambling expansion vote is being pushed back. Could come Sunday or Monday, evan as late as Tuesday. Word is that it could still be amended to make it more palatable to certain interest groups.

Never mind.
The House adjourned and went home until Sunday. No action on tax increase, workers comp or gambling.
