To the Honorable Members of the

Illinois House of Representatives

94th General Assembly



            Pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(b) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby veto House Bill 5377, entitled “AN ACT concerning property.”   While I recognize and appreciate the hard work of all the sponsors in passing this legislation, the bill would apply to only 3 of the approximately 900 Illinois mobile home parks.  Legislation addressing mobile home park leasing policies should apply uniformly to all Illinois mobile home parks.


            For this reason, I hereby veto and return House Bill 5377.
