Yes another need may arise but the sunset must be in it. We have to pay for some things, like a county jail, when they're needed and a new jail is needed. Good grief don't you think you should pay for something, there's no money fairy out there to pay for things a community needs from time to time?

Bill would require prescription for common cold medicines

8 months, 4 weeks ago from the Associated Press

Illinois lawmakers look to solve the methamphetamine problem in Illinois

Lawmakers in Springfield are considering whether to require prescriptions for some common medicines as they look to solve the methamphetamine problem in Illinois.
The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports a Senate panel heard testimony Thursday. The Senate bill would make drugs containing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine Schedule III controlled substances and require prescriptions.
Pekin Police Chief Greg Nelson told lawmakers that methamphetamine users and producers "are adapting and changing, and we need to adapt and change also."
But others argued requiring prescriptions for some decongestants would be a burden on consumers. Consumer Healthcare Products drug lobbyist Carlos Gutierrez says some consumers can't afford to see a doctor for cold medicine.

Illinois lawmakers have previously restricted the purchase of similar drugs
