    1. SPRINGFIELD – Governor Bruce Rauner took action today on the following bills

      It would be nice if these were actionable links to the bill text

    1. many of the reforms that were so effective in Michigan are included in Gov. Bruce Rauner’s legislative agenda for Illinois. Michigan enacted collective-bargaining reforms along with Right to Work,

      Right to Work isn't reform - it guts workers rights and job security. Plus, the number of manufacturing jobs in Michigan have been steadily rising since 2010. Right to Work wasn't passed until 2012. Data doesn't match context.

    1. Limits Terms of Certain Collective Bargaining Contracts

      why is this the title of the bill if the bill text says it doesn't apply to collective bargaining agreements?

    1. Prohibits an individual from taking action against a law enforcement officer based on the officer’s compliance or noncompliance with the provisions of this bill (Sec. 5).

      this sounds like it will prevent minorities from suing an officer based on racial discrimination when the police inevitably don't comply with this bill when the underage drinkers are PoCs and not whites
