Honorable Members of the
Illinois House of Representatives
Pursuant to Article IV, Section
9(b) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby veto House Bill 1960,
entitled “AN ACT concerning public employee benefits.” While I recognize and appreciate
the hard work of all the sponsors in passing this legislation, House Bill 1960 establishes new
pension obligations for the State.
this reason, I hereby veto and return House Bill 1960.
