SPRINGFIELDSenate lawmakers took a short break this week before their scheduled April 29 return. The Senate will be in session every week through the end of May said State Senator Pamela J. Althoff (R-Crystal Lake), considering House legislation and negotiating a Fiscal Year 2009 budget by the scheduled May 29 adjournment.  


Though legislators were not in the Statehouse this week, many continued to weigh in on legislation that would move Illinois one step closer to allowing for the recall of its constitutional officers and legislative representatives. Senate Joint Resolution Committee Amendment 28 was hotly debated in a Senate Executive Committee on April 17, but despite the measure’s widespread support, it was ultimately held by its Senate Democrat sponsor.
