IL Veto Session; Banning Right to Work Zones, Elementary Schools Teach Cursive

The fall veto session is in full swing in Springfield, with some wins and losses for both sides of the aisle.

The house and senate spent the day in session considering bills that have been vetoed by the governor. That includes a measure banning right to work zones in Illinois, where employees can refuse union membership but still keep their jobs. Representative Kathleen Willis of Northlake.

The house fell one vote short of overriding the governor’s veto so the bill dies. House lawmakers did override a veto on legislation requiring elementary schools to teach cursive writing. That measure is sponsored by Representative Chris Welch of Westchester.

It fell just one short of passage in the house.
