Full Text of SB1515  103rd General Assembly


August 4, 2023



To the Honorable Members of

The Illinois Senate,

103rd General Assembly:


Today, at the request of the sponsors and advocates, I will veto Senate Bill 1515 from the 103rd General Assembly. The bill is intended to increase protections for workers.  However, due to irreconcilable drafting errors, the bill will have an adverse effect on the workers it seeks to protect.


My administration appreciates the hard work of the sponsors in the House and Senate and the workers’ rights advocates who worked to get this bill passed. I look forward to working together with sponsors and advocates to craft legislation to increase worker protections.


Therefore, pursuant to Section 9(b) of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return Senate Bill 1515, entitled “AN ACT concerning employment,” with the foregoing objections, vetoed in its entirety.








JB Pritzker

Governor, State of Illinois
