The Legislature is scheduled to be in session for the next 13 days, as it plods toward its traditional May 31 adjournment date (although there's nothing that says it can't stay in Springfield longer). 

There has been no open discussion of a particular tax increase plan, but there's been general discussion of ideas advanced by the Civic Federation and the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability. Both groups support a broader sales tax and a higher income tax.
