Legislative Efforts

We have listed bills being tracked by the ISRA in Springfield this spring session of the 100th General Assembly. Remember that the ISRA is the ONLY gun-rights organization based in Illinois with lobbyists in Springfield. Indeed, our lobbyists are there whenever there's action, testifying in committee, meeting with your legislators, and working in partnership with the NRA lobbyist. Lobbyists are expensive, please consider a legislative donation.

Shell bills are introduced without meaningful language, and can be changed later.  We have to watch those bills introduced by the anti-gunners to see if they develop into anything threatening. There are also shell bills introduced by those on our side.

We have linked in listings of the addresses & phone numbers for the Springfield and District offices for all Illinois Representatives and Senators. We have also provided a link to locate your own legislator and his contact information.

Please be aware that our stated position is based upon the bills language at the time of our review. Our position may change at any time during  the course of the legislative session due to amendments that are put forward by the legislators. Furthermore, be sure to check the bill list regularly as bills may be added AFTER the introduction deadline due to amendments.

We urge you to file witness slips electronically by going to www.ilga.gov and clicking on GA Dashboard.  The main page provides a listing of scheduled hearings for that day.  Click on House or Senate link to get other scheduled hearings.  Click on "committee hearings" to access list of scheduled hearings.  Click on right icon to get the hearing details.  To create a witness list, look for correct bill number and click on "create witness slip" link on far right.  Fill out witness slip and submit.  Remember electronic witness slips can be submitted up to the conclusion of the committee hearing.
