PALATINE—State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) has released the following statement in response to Speaker Madigan’s cancellation of the Fall Veto Session:
“I strongly disagree with the Democrats’ decision to cancel our scheduled veto session. It’s a disservice to a growing number of Illinois residents and businesses who are rightly frustrated by our Governor’s unilateral decisions and actions, which have grave consequences and demand scrutiny.
When Speaker Madigan says, “there is a strong majority of members” who don’t want to meet for session next week, he is speaking only of his members, not the entire General Assembly.
Last May we safely and responsibly met, and we can and should do so again. We have a duty to our constituents to lead, not to continue to pass off our responsibilities to the Governor and his appointees.”
