House Speaker Michael Madigan has canceled today's session of the Illinois House, including an override vote on Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of a school funding bill. Madigan says he remains committed to seeing the school funding reform package through.

The news came after one of the longest leaders meetings in recent memory. Legislative leaders met for five hours before Madigan made the cancellation as a show of good faith in negotiations. More talks will now proceed between the leaders.
