Death Penalty abolition in Illinois

I was happy to read that my former home state and former employer, Illinois, has taken a big step toward abolishing the death penalty. I worked for two governors, but not for the Republican now in jail for corruption who got this rolling with a courageous moratorium on executions. Nor did I work for the Democrat recently making the talk show rounds; when does Rod have to show up for prison?
Anyway, the legislative houses have both passed abolition. I hope Gov. Pat Quinn will sign it!  The link takes you to an article with a very unscientific poll you can answer.
