FILE - IL Gov. J.B. Pritzker

Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker takes in the applause before signing a bill at Sankofa Cultural Arts and Business Center in Chicago on June 25, 2019.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed scores of bills into law Friday and used his veto pen on three other measures. 

One of the measures Pritzker vetoed was House Bill 3222, which would have instructed the Illinois Medical District Commission to execute a quitclaim deed on property it owns, essentially handing it over to Urban Autism Solutions, a nonprofit organization, free of charge. 

“Urban Autism Solutions does important and valuable work and my administration is strongly committed to working with this and the other worthy nonprofits located in the Illinois Medical District to support their viability to continue their work,” Pritzker wrote in his veto message. “However, transferring public property with significant fair market value at no cost to a single private foundation – no matter how worthy – is unfair to other nonprofit organizations located in the Illinois Medical District who were not offered a similar deal and continue to pay rent for use of Illinois Medical District property.” 

He partially vetoed the bill, striking that language. 

The governor vetoed another bill because he said it would be redundant with already enacted legislation as well as a total veto of Senate Bill 2128, a bill said to affect court reporting, which he said would have caused “unintended consequences on existing and established court procedures.”

Among the 129 bills enacted was House Bill 254, which requires the Illinois State Board of Education to keep records on “actively employed teachers within each school district, pupil-teacher ratios for each school district, class instructors by grade level and subject in each school district, and class size in each school.”

He signed House Bill 2076, a ban of thermal paper containing BPA, an industrial chemical found in many consumer products, in Illinois beginning on Jan. 1, 2020. Thermal paper is commonly used in receipts.

House Bill 2276, signed into law Friday and effective immediately, imposes fines for people caught smoking in a car with one or more minors present.

House Bill 2383, named Mason’s Law after an Iroquois County man killed in a right-of-way accident, requires a 12-month suspension of driving privileges if a motorist violates right-of-way at crosswalks and in school zones.
