​Senate begins taking votes on “grand bargain”…Republicans say they shouldn’t vote until package is fully negotiated

/ Vandalia Radio

The Illinois Senate started voting on the supposedly bipartisan “Grand Bargain” Wednesday, but without Republican support. A few of the bills were called for a vote, receiving either No’s or present votes from GOP lawmakers. Republicans argued that there shouldn’t be any votes until the entire package is fully negotiated. State Senator Don Harmon disagreed.

The Senate passed the bill regarding local government consolidation and procurement reform but a more controversial bill on pension reform failed.
