I previously wrote about Senate Bill 2149, introduced by Senator Don Harmon (D-Oak Park). Last week, the proposed amendment to the Illinois Trade Secrets Act passed the Senate Judiciary Committee with a Do-Pass recommendation. In legislative parlance, this means the committee has voted to send the measure to the full Senate for a vote. The do-pass measure was voted upon without amendment to the draft bill.
I will continue to track SB 2149 and report on developments. Please click on the above link for a summary of the procedural changes proposed to the ITSA. If you want to read the draft bill, you can find it here in PDF.
