Ethics reform proposals are dominating the first half of the Illinois General Assembly’s fall veto session.  Lawmakers met during a series of political corruption scandals.  Notable absences from the session included Senator Martin Sandoval and state Representative Luis Arroyo.  High dollar legislation such as Governor Pritzker’s push to consolidate 650 downstate and suburban public safety pension funds are being left for the last three days of the session that kicks off November 12th.
