Illinois lawmakers approved eavesdropping restrictions to replace those the state Supreme Court struck down.
The Senate voted yesterday to prohibit recording private conversations without the consent of everyone involved.
The measure exempts recording police in the line of duty, loud conversations in public or cheering fans at a ballgame. Critics objected the bill does not include provisions for police to wear body cameras.
The measure goes to Gov. Pat Quinn, who has not said if he will sign it.
