Illinois Legislators Kill Ethics Omnibus Bill
Illinois State House lawmakers killed an ethics omnibus bill by rejecting the Amendatory Veto of Senate Bill 539 issued by Gov. JB Pritzker last week.
The requested amendment was a minor change to the bill to keep the current process regarding ethics investigations.
The Senate adopted the change, but the House, which had passed the bill by a vote of 113 to 5, rejected the change by a vote of 59 to 35.
