Mr. Illini,
Can the democrats regain their voter proof majority?
Thanks in advance!

Well, we do have the veto proof majority *technically.* The problem is that there are a number of Democrats (mostly from Republican-leaning districts) within that supermajority that are frequently deflecting to Rauner's agenda. I don't think Dems will be able to push the already-quite-super majority further to put together a supermajority block of loyal Democrats.

For now it's about holding what they have, doing what they can to push the agenda, hopefully compromising with the governor occasionally (which both sides are at fault for as of now), and beating him in two years.

Ok, pretty irrelevant question: what happened with the automatic registration bill? Has Rauner signed it and if not until when can he veto it?
