To the Honorable Members of the Illinois Senate,

96th General Assembly:


I hereby return Senate Bill 1576 with specific recommendations for change.


This bill purports to separate the Racing Board from the Department of Revenue. Such a separation has already been accomplished by Executive Order 09-05, which established the Racing Board as an independent entity on July 1, 2009. In an effort to avoid confusion, I am compelled to change this bill to reflect what is already the law of our State. 


Therefore, pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(e) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return Senate Bill 1576, entitled “AN ACT concerning State government.”, with the following specific recommendations for change:


on page 1, by deleting lines 4 through 23; and


on page 2, by deleting lines 1 through 5; and


on page 2, by replacing line 10 with “effective date of Executive Order 09-05”; and


on page 2, line 11, by deleting “Assembly”.


With these changes, Senate Bill 1576 will have my approval.  I respectfully request your concurrence.
