Sine Die

Those who read McHenry County Blog know that I love license plates with messages.

This is former State Senator Jack Schaffer's license plate.

It refers to what the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House say when they adjourn a session for good.

It comes from the Latin

Sine Die

It means, “The final adjournment of a legislative session, without adjourning to a specific time or date,” according to The 'Lectric Law Library.

Jack left off the “e” for some reason. Maybe it wouldn't fit.

The night I took this photo, he spoke to the Algonquin Township Republican Central Committee at the Cary Country Club.

You will note that he has a John McCain for President bumper sticker, as well as a Dan Duffy for State Senator bumper sticker.
