Amends the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act, the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act, the Election Code, the General Assembly Operations Act, the Personnel Code, the General Assembly Compensation Act, the General Assembly Staff Assistants Act, the Legislative Commission Reorganization Act of 1984, the Lobbyist Registration Act, the Illinois Procurement Code, the Raffles Act, and the State Lawsuit Immunity Act.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends that the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act prohibit the solicitation and acceptance of gifts by State officials and employees and their families from certain prohibited sources with enumerated exceptions; provides for the appointment of an Executive Inspector General to investigate allegations of ethics violations in the executive branch of State government; provides for the appointment of an Executive Ethics Commission to hear complaints of those violations; provides for an ethics hot line in the executive branch; and makes changes concerning the prohibitions against public service announcements and employment after service in the State's procurement process. Repeals the State Gift Ban Act and amends the Open Meetings Act, the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act, and the Personnel Code to make conforming changes. Further amends the Lobbyist Registration Act concerning the registration fee and the service of lobbyists on boards, commissions, authorities, and task forces.
