Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's stamp of disapproval is not holding up for a road kill bill. He vetoed the measure that would allow drivers and hunters to pick up dead animals off the side of the road. Quinn says it's too dangerous for people to attempt to recover a dead animal but state representatives disagree.
They voted to override the veto yesterday. The law only applies to fur-bearing animals, but there's still one more hurdle to cross before it becomes law. The state Senate must also override that veto.
