Statement From Governor Pat Quinn On House Bill 1200

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today issued the below statement regarding the House’s action to uphold the Governor’s veto of House Bill 1200. The legislation would have decreased the number of days a museum or aquarium must be open free of cost to Illinois residents, which would have disproportionately limited access to lower income families.

“It’s always important to ensure that our residents with modest incomes have equal access to our world-class museums and cultural institutions.

“I commend members of the House for their vote today. They did the right thing.”
