Governor Pat Quinn has signed new eavesdropping restrictions for Illinois after the old law was declared unconstitutional by the Illinois Supreme Court. 

Some Illinois lawmakers oppose eavesdropping legislation awaiting action by the governor because it doesn't address how police officers may use body-worn cameras.

Illinois lawmakers have approved eavesdropping restrictions to replace those the state Supreme Court declared unconstitutional last spring. 

Since the Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state's eavesdropping law in March, it's been legal to record audio of someone without asking permission. But legislators are working on a replacement.
