To the Honorable Members of the

Illinois House of Representatives

96th General Assembly


I hereby veto House Bill 208. 


My decision to veto this legislation reflects a technical, rather than a substantive, disagreement.  This bill is duplicative of Article 10 of House Bill 2424, which I signed into law on July 13, 2009 and has become Public Act 96-37.  Nevertheless, I would like to commend the sponsors for their work on this important issue.


Therefore, pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(b) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I return House Bill 208 to the House of Representatives, where it originated, with the foregoing objections, vetoed in its entirety.
