Lawmakers won’t return to Springfield until at least February following the cancellation of eight of the nine regularly scheduled session days for the month of January.
Majority party leaders cite the rise in COVID cases across the state as the reason for the cancellation. Senator Sue Rezin says despite the cancellation, she is committed to ensuring the people’s business is accomplished.
While in-person session won’t be taking place this month, Senate committees are still scheduled virtually to allow for the hearing of legislation. Sen. Rezin encourage constituents to stay updated on legislation as it gets posted for hearings and reminds them of their ability to file witness slips in support or opposition of proposals making their way through the committee process.
Legislators are already working against a tight deadline with the spring adjournment scheduled for April 8, 2022, ahead of the June primary.
