Gov. Pat Quinn used a procedural move sidestepping a deadline to have two cabinet members reappointments approved by the state Senate.
Quinn withdrew the nomination of Julie Hamos as director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, then resubmitted her name for the post.
An Illinois senate spokeswoman says the move “in effect has reset the clock” for approval. The deadline was this week.
Quinn also resubmitted Manny Flores as secretary of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
