Pritzker nearing final week for action on bills

SPRINGFIELD – Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed more than 50 bills last week and has about one week remaining to sign the final 167 of the 599 total bills sent to him by the General Assembly this year. The most recently signed bills include a package of legislation affecting first responders, a bill striking down a 1998 state law pertaining to greenhouse gas emissions, a banking initiative of Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza and a measure to allow graduate student teaching assistants to unionize. House Bill 2766, which was signed last week, is aimed at “ending the stigma surrounding mental health issues among firefighters and law enforcement officers,” according to a news release from Indian Creek Democratic state Sen.
