Senate to consider overrides of Governor's vetoes

The Illinois Senate has scheduled Tuesday, August 19, to return to Springfield to consider the Governorís vetoes and amendatory vetoes of legislation passed by the General Assembly. Included in the listing of bills that could be considered by the Senate is House Bill 4189, an ICCTA initiative to clarify that community college districts are units of local government with respect to the State Official and Employees Ethics Act.

The Governor vetoed HB 4189 on August 8, and on August 13 the House of Representatives overrode the Governorís veto. The Senate must also vote to override the Governorís veto in order for the bill to become law.

ICCTA is initiating efforts in the Senate to override the Governorís veto of HB 4189. Last spring the Senate voted 58 - 0 - 0 to pass this legislation.
