Legislative Advisory - May 24, 2019

5/24/2019

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.
