Springfield (AP) – The Illinois General Assembly convenes Wednesday as its fall session winds down. The House voted Tuesday to override a veto on raising to $2 million the cap on damage awards in lawsuits against the state. The law is now in effect. Supporters say the $100,000 cap set in the early 1970’s didn’t fairly compensate victims. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner had suggested a $300,000 cap. Override votes on key measures remain. The House has yet to take action on an override approved by the Senate on legislation setting a deadline for police to help cooperative immigrant crime victims get U.S. visas. Another Senate-approved override would reverse a veto on banning tobacco sales to those under 21. The fall session ends Thursday.
