The Citizens Advocacy Center is calling for support to block an attempt by the state legislature to override Gov. Quinn’s veto of HB 3796.
“As we suspected, it looks likely that the Illinois General Assembly will attempt to override the Governor’s veto on HB 3796 and may be brought up for a vote as early as today,” Maryam Judar, CAC executive director said.
According to Judar, this problematic bill was vetoed by Governor Quinn. For details read HB 3796 Fact Sheet and Top 10 Reasons Why Illinois General Assembly Should vote NO on the CAC website, Citizen Advocacy Center
Judar says it is imperative for journalists and anyone else interested to “call your state senator right now.” Persons can find their state senator at this link Legislator Locator. The Legislature reconvenes on Monday, Dec. 1.
“We urge people to call to tell them you oppose HB3796 as this bill severely curbs the ability of the public to monitor government activity,” Judar says.
