More Impact Notes Filed, Votes Set Later Today

More of the "notes" have been filed on the IDEA bill that state Rep. David Reis, R-Olney, had requested. We're still waiting for the last two.

So far most of these notes or impact statements from various state departments show that there would be no impact, evidence of stalling technique.

What's left is the Fiscal and Balanced Budget reports. These are the two big ones and are legitimate considering the proposal involves STAR bonds for the Marion project, an incentive that's never been tried in Illinois.

In order to pass, the bill has to be brought to the floor of the House of Representatives. They have to pass it and then it will go to the Senate for a vote. All of that needs to be done today.

Meanwhile, House Democrats are meeting with Gov. Quinn this morning about the budget.
