The Illinois Lincoln Amendment, so-called because it was proposed on Lincoln's 203rd birthday,[1] did not make the November 2012 ballot in Illinois as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would allow the public to enact ethics laws through ballot referendums. The amendment was proposed by Governor Pat Quinn on February 12 and was sponsored by Senator Annazette Collins.[2]
