To the Honorable Members of the

Illinois House of Representatives

94th General Assembly



            Pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(b) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby veto House Bill 2067, entitled “AN ACT concerning criminal law.”   While I recognize and appreciate the hard work of all the sponsors in passing this legislation, I cannot condone leniency towards sex offenders, whether the sex offender is a juvenile or an adult.  Furthermore, it is important that the people of Illinois have a dependable medium that provides information regarding sex offenders in their area.  In my opinion, House Bill 2067 erodes that dependability.


            For this reason, I hereby veto and return House Bill 2067.
