Honorable Members of the
Pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(b) of the Illinois
Constitution of 1970, I hereby veto Senate Bill 540, entitled “AN ACT
concerning vehicles.” Safety is a top priority for Illinois’ roads, and this
bill compromises safety by allowing trucks to travel at higher speeds. I remain
opposed to increasing the speed limit to 65 miles per hour for large trucks.
this reason, I hereby veto and return Senate Bill 540.
