The Illinois House voted Tuesday to override Gov. Pat Quinn’s veto on a measure dealing with the Freedom of Information Act. The plan gives governments more time to respond to certain citizens' requests, and can charge them up to $100 for some information.
In his veto message, Quinn said the bill reduces government transparency. Now, the Senate will decide if they agree.
The General Assembly also began to advance one of Quinn's last requests--a minimum wage hike. A Senate committee passed a plan to bring it to $10 an hour beginning in July.
