Gov. Pritzker signs into law bill to end license suspensions for unpaid parking tickets

From the Chicago Tribune:

Illinois will no longer suspend the licenses of drivers who fail to pay parking tickets and other fines beginning July 1 under a measure Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law Friday.

The secretary of state’s office also will reinstate the driving privileges of roughly 55,000 people who’ve had their licenses suspended over unpaid fines and fees unrelated to moving violations.

“Right now, tens of thousands of Illinoisans lose their licenses each year for reasons that have nothing to do with their ability to drive,” Pritzker said at a bill-signing event in Chicago’s Homan Square neighborhood.
