Pihos Perspective Nov 18th - Veto Session
Lawmakers return to Springfield this week for the 2014 Veto Session. During the 2014 Spring Session, Governor Quinn issued either a partial or full veto of ten bills. He also issued a line item veto in relation to one of the FY15 appropriations bills (HB3793). Some of the vetoes were at the request of bill sponsors, but vetoed items of interest are summarized below. As always, I value your input. If you would like to share your opinion on any of the bills/initiatives included in this update, please don't hesitate to contact me at 217-782-8037 or 630-858-8855.
