This thing has Rahm Emanuel written all over it. Emanuel was the author of the federal "AWB".

Under the IL "amendatory veto" rule the legislature may approve the measure by a majority vote or reject it by a 3/5 vote. If the legislature does nothing the bill dies.

Under the amendatory veto power, a governor may return a bill with specific recommendations for change, which lawmakers can accept by majority votes in each chamber or can over- ride with three-fifths majorities. If legislators do neither, the bill is dead.

Despite the speaker’s distaste for the practice, over the last two decades, lawmakers have accepted governors’ changes more than two-thirds of the time, and overridden only about 6 percent of the amenda-tory vetoes. In the remainder of the cases — about a quarter of the total — the underlying bills have died.
