Good morning, members
Please be advised that the session days scheduled for next week will be cancelled. Regarding the committee deadline for House bills, which was previously extended to April 3, that deadline will be extended to April 24. The 3rd reading deadline for House bills will be extended to May 8, which will now be a scheduled session day. Note that these and other deadlines will be reviewed and extended as needed moving forward.
As I indicated in previous communications, the session schedule is in flux, and members should be prepared to return to Springfield to address urgent matters, including during the weeks of April 5 and April 12 (the legislative spring break).
Furthermore, we are planning to have another conference call for House Democratic caucus members on Monday, March 30 at 9:30 a.m. Discussions on budget-making and the hospital assessment program are ongoing this week members should anticipate receiving a status update on these matters during the Monday call.
Finally, the Office has been working on a Google Drive folder that contains all the various pieces of information thats been shared by the Governors Office and others. The intent is to make it easier for you to navigate all the quickly changing information on various topics. We will continue to update that folder with new information on a daily basis you will find that each file is dated, so you can quickly see how recent the information is. You can view that folder and its contents through this link: https://drive.google...SmQ?usp=sharing
I would encourage you to share this link with your district office staff.
Take care and be well,
Jessica Basham, Chief of Staff
Office of the Speaker
Illinois House of Representatives
