At a press conference this afternoon at the Capitol, Senate President John Cullerton told reporters he has made multiple attempts to speak to Governor Rauner about Senate Bill 1's status. The governor has said he will veto the bill and offer an alternative, but demands the bill be sent to his desk. He will not provide any details on his plan, nor will he agree to meet with Cullerton to discuss possible changes.
