Rich Miller on Springfield: Special session on abortion looking more unlikely
Back in early July, after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Gov. J.B. Pritzker and the two Democratic legislative leaders, House Speaker Chris Welch and Senate President Don Harmon, issued a joint statement, which in part said: "We plan to work closely together for the remainder of the summer to assess every possibility of what we can do and convene a special session in the coming months." But the fine print of the rest of that statement has slowed things down: "As we build on Illinois' nation-leading abortion protections and access, it is essential to bring lawmakers and advocates into the room to continue to work together. In the coming weeks, as the ripples of the decision to overturn Roe are felt throughout the nation, we expect to get an acute sense of our needs and how Illinois can play an even more vital role in standing up for reproductive freedom."
