Senate overrides Governor's veto;
HB 4189 becomes law

The Illinois Senate voted 53-0-1 this afternoon to override Gov. Rod Blagojevich's veto of 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.

Since both houses of the Illinois General Assembly have voted to override the Governor's veto, HB 4189 now becomes state law, effective immediately. (The Illinois House of Representatives voted 78-12 to override the Governor's veto on August 14.)
