How a State Bill Becomes Law
 

These are bills being tracked by the ISRA in Springfield this second session of the 98th 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 introduced by the anti-gunners to see if 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.

Shaded font entries represent bills that have not met deadline requirements and have been returned to the Assignment/Rules Committees. Keep in mind, all bills are alive until the end of the current (98th) General Assembly in January of 2015.  These bills may recalled at any time until then.
