TC-GunVetoGovernor Pat Quinn vetoed the Senate and House approved concealed carry legislation, today.

“I am disappointed—but not surprised—Governor Quinn waited so long to veto concealed carry while he tried to score political points,” State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) said.

“Even though he has put lawmakers in a difficult position, I am optimistic that we will be able to override his veto and finally get a law on the books.”

The legislation, House Bill 183, now returns to the House to accept or override the governor’s veto. A simple majority is required to accept the changes in the governor’s amendatory veto, and a three-fifths majority to override. The Senate would then need to concur—or agree—with the House’s action.
