From the House Speaker…

Memorandum

July 20, 2012

To: All House Members

Re: House Session

The House will convene on Friday, August 17, 2012 at 11 a.m. The members should plan to convene and adjourn on Friday, August 17.

As I told subscribers earlier this week, the governor wants a Rep. Derrick Smith vote to be combined with a pension reform day. It’s possible…

“It is expected the House will receive and vote on the report from the select committee on discipline, dealing with Rep. Derrick Smith,” said Madigan spokesman Steve Brown. Mr. Smith is under federal indictment for alleged bribe-taking, and the select committee voted earlier this week to recommend his expulsion. But Mr. Brown would not rule out dealing with other matters on the 17th. “That will be up to the members,” he said. “I’m not going to raise expectations.”

UPDATE The AP reports that the Senate President won’t call his members back to town… Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, doesn’t plan to call the Senate into session when the House meets, said spokesman Ronald Holmes. He suggests the House pass a version of the pension plan that the Senate has already approved. Quinn could call the Senate back on his own, of course.
