Grayslake 13-year-old persuades Gov. Quinn to veto bill
GRAYSLAKE – Illinois student Abby Goldberg, joined by more than 170,000 people who signed her petition on Change.org, has persuaded Governor Pat Quinn to veto SB 3442, the “Plastic Bag and Film Recycling Act,” a proposed law that would have prohibited communities in Illinois from enacting bans on plastic bags.
Governor Quinn, who vetoed the bill on Sunday, credited Golberg with raising awareness about the implications of the proposed law, and thanked Goldberg for her work to protect the environment in Illinois. Earlier this summer, Gov. Quinn met with Goldberg personally when the 13-year-old girl delivered her petition to the Governor in Chicago.
