To the Honorable Members of

The Illinois Senate,

100th General Assembly:



Today I veto Senate Bill 2344, which creates provisions in the event of a school district’s withdrawal from a special education joint agreement.


This bill was drafted in response to a single occurrence of a specific local disagreement. Since this bill’s proposal and subsequent passage in the General Assembly, the disputing parties have reached an agreement. This has rendered this bill unnecessary and has demonstrated that local issues do not inevitably require statutory solutions.


Therefore, pursuant to Section 9(b) of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return Senate Bill 2344, entitled “AN ACT concerning education,” with the foregoing objections, vetoed in its entirety.
