SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois House won’t be meeting in Springfield next week as planned.

On Friday, House Speaker Michael Madigan sent a notice to his chamber canceling the two-day session next week. Madigan spokesman Steve Brown says the “workload was not there.” House members are expected to return on Jan. 27, when Rauner is due to give his State of the State address.

The Illinois Senate will still meet next week. Senators are due back on Wednesday.

The schedule changes come as Illinois enters its seventh month without a budget for the fiscal year that began last July.
