It’s time for some spring cleaning. It has come to the attention of State Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) that in not even 30 years, the number of volumes of state laws has swelled from three to nine. He wants Illinois to follow the lead of such states as Florida and New York to “set up a system where redundant laws that are in conflict or outdated or burdensome may be reviewed on recommendation to us to get rid of.”

Dillard’s bill to create an “Office of the Repealer” would also “set up a system where businesses, if they think we have a redundant law or something, and (that) we need to get rid of it, could let the (Legislative Reference Bureau) know, and they recommend to us.”


S.B. 3681 has passed the Senate, 55-0.
