The Illinois Supreme Court has opened its doors for a special evening session tonight. The justices want Gov. Bruce Rauner and other legislators to meet and watch as they hear a case.
Chief Justice Rita Garman says in a news release that she wants to give lawmakers a window into the system's essential checks and balances.
Rauner's office announced that he will attend the session, beginning at 6:20 p.m.
The invitation came after the Supreme Court heard arguments last week about a landmark pension law passed in 2013 and as Rauner wants to cut $34 million from the high court's budget.
