Winkel is one of the few Republicans to support the measure, and sponsored an ammendment that was intended to make it more palatable to other members of his party. Meeks seems eager for a vote. It is expected that the governor would veto the measure, which would give him the satisfaction of being a tax cutter(or at least, opposed to tax increases) while the legislature was being fiscally irresponsble. However, Madigan would probably relish seeing the governor squirm under the not so admiring gazes of IFT/AFT and IEA/NEA. It also seems unlikely that the bill would pass the House, at least, by a veto proof majority.
