It’s called the fall “veto” session, but lawmakers won’t deal too much with actual vetoes when they return to Springfield next week.  In fact, there are only three vetoes that they may consider overriding, including a bill that cuts the number of free days at museums from 52 to 26 a year.  Quinn didn’t like that idea because he said it was too restrictive.  

Other items that could come up for debate include pension reform, gay marriage, tighter gun sentencing, and whether or not to give Ag giant ADM a multi-million-dollar tax incentive to stay in Illinois.
