– The State House and Senate were supposed to be in Springfield today for the last day of the
fall veto session.
Lawmakers canceled today's sessions, and
will not be back until January. That means the governor's budget cuts stand,
affecting prisons and corrections facilities around the state, including a
transitional center in Decatur.
The governor cut funding by vetoing
budget items then the senate overrode that veto last week. The house lawmakers
did not take the same overriding action, so the cuts stand.
