To the Honorable Members of the

Illinois Senate

93rd General Assembly


Quick-take authority should be limited in scope, limited in time, limited to specific property, and confined to a public purpose.  The provision regarding Morton Grove has raised many questions as to the appropriate use of quick-take in regards to economic development.  The provision regarding Morton Grove fails in this regard but I am interested in any subsequent bill regarding Morton Grove if it is limited to specific property with clearly defined boundaries as opposed to an entire area in a redevelopment district.  Pursuant to Article IV, Section 9(e) of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return Senate Bill 640, entitled “AN ACT in relation to real property”, with the following specific recommendations for change:


            on page 1, line 6, by deleting “7-103.106”.


            by deleting page 3, line 24 through page 8, line 22.


With these changes, Senate Bill 640 will have my approval.  I respectfully request your concurrence.



Rod R. Blagojevich
