Illinois Governor Vetoes Amendment to Data Breach Law


Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner recently issued an amendatory veto of Senate Bill 1833 (SB 1833), the proposed amendment to Illinois’ Personal Information Protection Act. As previously discussed in this blog, SB 1833 seeks to strengthen Illinois’ data breach notification law by expanding the types of information that trigger breach notifications, and by placing additional requirements on covered entities that handle personal information.

SB 1833 was sent to Governor Rauner on June 29, 2015, and the Governor had sixty days to sign, veto or amendatorily veto the bill. On August 21, 2015, Governor Rauner issued an amendatory veto sending the bill back to the legislature with suggested changes. Governor Rauner determined that SB1833, as presented to him, imposed duplicative and burdensome requirements that would hurt Illinois economic competitiveness without providing commensurate benefit to Illinois’ consumers and residents.

Governor Rauner’s veto statement, including his suggested changes to SB1833, can be found here. The Illinois Legislature can now vote to override his veto, concur with the suggested changes, or take no action. We will continue to monitor the status of this bill and report on future developments.
