House overrides Governor's veto
of community college ethics and local government bill

On Wednesday, August 13, the Illinois House of Representatives voted 78-12-0 to override the Governorís veto on House Bill 4189. Representative Prichard (R- Sycamore), the chief sponsor of the legislation, filed the motion to override the veto, which was then passed shortly before the House adjourned a Special Session called by the Governor.

The Illinois Senate must also vote to override the Governorís veto in order for HB 4189 to become law.

HB 4189 is an ICCTA-initiated bill that clarifies that community college districts are units of local government (not state agencies) under the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act.
