Allstate Supports Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s Amendatory Veto
NORTHBROOK, Ill. – Allstate issued the following statement today in response to Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s amendatory veto of Illinois Senate Bill 2641, the Renter’s Financial Responsibility and Protection Act. The governor’s action makes significant changes to legislation passed by the Illinois legislature in June that would have threatened transportation innovation and competition in the state.
“Gov. Rauner’s amendatory veto will enable car sharing to significantly lower the cost of personal transportation in Illinois. Every household will have the opportunity to redirect thousands of dollars per year from idle cars to education, paying off debts or saving for retirement,” said Allstate Chairman, President and CEO Tom Wilson. “The governor’s proposed changes will foster the innovation necessary to make car sharing a reality and should be supported by the legislature as a vote for family economic wellbeing.”
