Representative Kathleen Willis' rewrite of SB1966
, her "Fix the FOID Act" was not called today in the Illinois House
(nor tonight, they just adjourned...) because she did not have enough
votes. The party is not over. Please keep calling your State
Representatives. The Spring legislative session is not scheduled to end
until Friday at midnight. Anything can happen up until then.
The Illinois House of Representatives will not be in session on Saturday (tomorrow) but will return on Sunday at 4:00pm. There has been a new amendment filed on SB1966. This Amendment reduces the cost of the FOID from $50 for five years to $20 for five years. The rest of the onerous provisions, such as fingerprinting and forcing private transfers through FFLs, still remain. We are vehemently opposed to this entire bill. I expect this new amendment to go to Committee immediately on Sunday afternoon. If this bill makes it through Committee, it will be on the House floor very quickly. Be prepared to file witness slips opposing this new amendment. As I write this, the amendment has not yet been posted to Committee.
Ranges 8, 9, 10 and 11 are under water and closed.
It is critical that you call your State Representative now and urge that they not support this bill, SB1966, as amended, in a floor vote.
PLEASE STAND BY FOR ALERTS!
Ranges 8, 9, 10 & 11 are CLOSED due to flooding.
