pjohnf - Gov. Quinn calls special session for comptroller election - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Quinn should butt out and let Rauner appoint an interim comptroller and decide if an election is needed or even wanted by Illinois citizens. Why waste more tax payer dollars for a special session, especially if Rauner disagrees with Quinn's stance. The earliest election would be 2016, so what's the hurry Quinn? The special session is a total waste of tax payer dollars

There are very few truly victimless crimes. If you look at Quincy, the arrests and names you see over and over again aren't usually getting picked up for smoking a joint, they're getting arrested for cooking and selling meth.

Concealed carry legislation goes before Illinois House on Tuesday

1 year, 9 months ago by Bob Gough

Lawmakers had filed 26 amendments - many to bar carrying weapons in places such as casinos or schools - by mid-afternoon Monday

From the Associated Press:

More than two dozen amendments involving the issue of carrying concealed weapons in Illinois could be debated on the House floor Tuesday.

House Speaker Michael Madigan has scheduled a hearing to allow legislators to submit amendments covering different topics involving the issue.

Lawmakers had filed 26 amendments - many to bar carrying weapons in places such as casinos or schools - by mid-afternoon Monday.

A federal court dismissed the Illinois ban in December and ordered a law be approved by early June.

Political scientist Kent Redfield of the University of Illinois at Springfield says the hearing allows lawmakers to support or oppose certain gun provisions even if they don't agree with the final legislation.

The bill is HB1155.
