LIVE BLOG: Legislative veto session in Springfield

Lawmakers begin to wrap up their annual fall veto session Wednesday after efforts to increase the state’s minimum wage stall in the House.

Legislative leaders indicate they may not hold a “lame duck” session in January, meaning no major legislation may be addressed before Republican Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner and a new General Assembly are sworn in in January. Before adjourning, lawmakers could vote on a state-based health exchange and on an election law bill.
