Tracy said she is confident that the Governor's pro-business reforms will be discussed more next session.

"Provides that a law enforcement agency or official shall not detain or continue to detain any individual exclusively on the basis of any immigration detainer or administrative warrant, or otherwise comply with an immigration detainer or administrative warrant after that individual becomes eligible for release from custody".

The state Senate is expected to take up the bill Tuesday, and Rauner has said he will sign it.

He said he had sought out the opinion of law enforcement as he was contemplating whether to sign or veto the bill.

"SB 1933 removes a barrier to voter participation by modernizing the voter registration process to make it simpler and more convenient for Illinoisans to vote", Rauner said in a statement.

"I have been complaining about them not compromising so it's hard for me to argue now if they are compromising". "... That's $75 million that could really help us". Covelli was one of several law enforcement officials present at the bill signing to support the legislation.

"If this legislation would have passed, it is certain that IL businesses would have had to raise prices to cover their higher labor costs, and it very likely that our small businesses would have had to cut jobs or hours to compensate their workers", Walsh said. They would need a criminal warrant.

Tally said two-thirds of undocumented immigrants in southern IL have lived in the US for 10 years or more, and about 70 percent have a family member who is a legal permanent resident or citizen.

"I'm grateful that Governor Rauner is doing something on the the state level", Hernandez said.

There's been backlash from conservative Republicans in IL, with some saying on social media that this is the beginning of the end for the governor and, if he wants Republican support, this is not the way to get it.

"This is what compromise looks like this is it a bill that none of us like at 100%", said Democratic Sen.

The law was supported by both the Illinois Sheriff's Association and the Illinois State Police.

Other opponents say the bill is a bad idea because there are often reasons to detain immigrants for reasons of national security.

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a measure Monday allowing automatic voter registration in IL, a move that comes a year after he rejected a similar measure over concerns about voter fraud.

With just a week to go until the first day of school, Chicago Public Schools has a new budget for the school year.

Cardinal Blase Cupich has long advocated for the proposal, a five-year trial program beginning with the 2018 school year, but the Chicago Teachers Union called it a "voucher scheme to help the wealthy."

"Our job is to take care of you, that's what we want to do", Leo P. Schmitz, the director of the Illinois State Police, said directing his comments at all Illinois residents, noting that he has worked in the community for 34 years.

The governor issued an amendatory veto to a similar piece of legislation past year because of concerns of potential voter fraud. Gov. Bruce Rauner was in the Senate for the vote. Rauner vetoed an automatic registration bill a year ago, saying it would lead to voter fraud, but signed a revised version that passed the legislature with unanimous support.
