By Greg Bishop | The Center Square

(The Center Square) – Next week’s session of the Illinois House has been canceled.

“There is a strong majority of members who would prefer the House delay convening to a later date; this is primarily motivated by concerns about the rising COVID-19 rates and proximity to upcoming holidays,” House Speaker Michael Madigan’s Chief of Staff Jessica Basham said in a letter to members. “I’m advised that there are similar concerns among Senate members, who were also surveyed over the weekend.”

Messages seeking comment from Senate President Don Harmon’s office weren’t immediately returned.
