To the Honorable
The Illinois Senate,
I return Senate Bill 1462 with specific recommendations for change.
is encouraging to see the General Assembly recognize that filing fees, permit
costs and licensing burdens all serve to discourage and slow down job creation.
However, arbitrarily waiving fees for three vaguely defined industries without
justification for picking economic winners and losers is not good economic policy;
if these benefits are to be provided, they should be provided equally across
pursuant to Section 9(e) of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I
hereby return Senate Bill 1462, entitled “AN ACT concerning State government,”
with the following specific recommendations for change:
On page 1, by
replacing lines 19 and 20 with: “entrepreneurs
in starting new businesses by providing”; and
On page 2, line 14, by replacing lines 14
through 16 with “(c) (blank).”.
these changes, Senate Bill 1462 will have my approval. I respectfully request
