Special Session: $40K for Seven Minutes of Work?

You can't even get a pizza that fast. The Illinois House yesterday gaveled-in and gaveled-out of special session in under ten minutes. Lawmakers are supposed to be in Springfield to talk about a state budget, but the House left their seats after just a few minutes of milling around. Illinois faces a laundry list of consequences if there is no state budget by the end of month. The cost to the state for each day of the special session is estimated at $40,000.
