To the Honorable Members of

The Illinois House,

101st General Assembly:

Today I veto House Bill 3590 from the 101st General Assembly, which would have amended the Illinois State Income Tax Act. My administration appreciates the hard work of the sponsors of the legislation in the House and the Senate, however, Senate Bill 690 from the 101st General Assembly, regarding FY20 vertical capital funding, contained substantially similar provisions and was signed into law on June 28, 2019. Those provisions are now contained in Public Act 101-0031.

Therefore, pursuant to Section 9(b) of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return House Bill 3590, entitled “AN ACT concerning revenue,” with the forgoing objections, vetoed in its entirety.


JB Pritzker
