category is the Legislative Information System's failure to post the roll call on the CTA/RTA bailout bill last night.
Even this morning when I called to ask why, it wasn’t up.
There was an asterisk next to the notation, but there was no note below. (Click below to enlarge the image.)
The person I talked to said that there had been a motion to reconsider by State Rep. Gary Hannig.
“So what?” I thought.
A vote was taken and it wasn’t put on postponed consideration.
Well, as I write this, it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and the roll call has magically appeared.
I believe it is worth noting that newspapers and radio stations without someone on the scene would not be able to report this morning how local legislators voted.
All three of McHenry County’s delegation—Jack Franks, Mike Tryon and Mark Beaubien vote against the measure.
House Republican Leader Tom Cross, whose idea was the guts of the bill voted “Present.”
Maybe he was thinking how people in Kendall County would react to his proposal to force each man, woman and child to subsidize the Chicago Transit Authority and Regional Transportation Authority $30 this year.
First posted on McHenry County Blog, where you can also find the roll call.
