If not, the governor would have dictatorial powers, and I would be surprised if the federal courts would allow that.
Yes in fact the author of the bill has to approve the changes before it can even be brought back for another vote.
I've written on the contents of this bill and shown how Quinn can use it to imprison we Illinoisans for possession of a freaking AIR RIFLE
This is just Quinn abusing his power to play political games in anticipation of his reelection campaign.
I'm two years he will say "I was going to sign such and such bill but they refused to put it up for a vote"
I'll admit that the majority of us in Illinois have set out in our election process... Too many people blame Chicago and take the lazy way out of the debate by claiming their vote does not count
Those people are awake now and will be joining the rest of us in the next election... It'll be a massive landslide loss for the liberal Chicago democrats in 2014.
You know the ol saying never mess with a mans car? That goes triple for his guns. Quinn just pissed off the wrong section of voters. We are the majority and we will show it this coming election
