Today is the day for Carry Concealed in Illinois.
If you did not know, today is the day that determines carry concealed once and for all (well not really once and for all) in Illinois. The ILGA will vote to over ride Governors veto of the carry concealed bill.

The rumor mill has it we will see the governor's amendments re-introduced as separate bills. TODAY IS A DAY ALL ILLINOIS GUN OWNERS ABSOLUTELY NEED TO BE PROACTIVE.

The Senate Dems. plan to caucus right after the Executive committee hearing this morning. If any of the Gov's veto items have any support, they plan to run them as separate trailer bills.

Please call your state senator and urge them to vote NO on any other changes to the carry bill!

TODAY is the day.

On a vote of 77/31/0, HB183 is declared passed not withstanding the Governor's recommendations.

The veto is overridden in the House. Onto the Senate.

IL Senate is delaying vote on HB183 by taking it out of the record.

On a side note it appears Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed for a motion of appearance possibly to request appeal to SCOTUS. This is speculation on my part, and not fact, but based on the Senate's actions could be possible to prevent Illinois from falling off the Concealed Carry Cliff.

OK more games. They are reusing to vote on the original CC bill and calling a new CC bill with the Governors changes included.

HB1453 is up and is a trailer bill. President Cullerton moves to adopt Amendment 2 which is a trailer to HB183.

Senator Murphy points out that the third reading deadline has not been extended on the bill. He is told it has been extended to 11/7/2013.

Amend 2 adds the governor's signage wording, duty to inform, and mental health provisions.

HB1453 passed in the Senate as amended on a vote of 45/13/0. HB1453 back to the House. (Hopefully the house kills it.)

HB183 is now up in the Senate.

Senator Raoul supports the override.

CGS 07-09-2013 07:13 PM

Senator Jacobs suggests to the Governor that he might want to work with the legislature while they're actually in session. hahahah

CGS 07-09-2013 07:17 PM

183 here by declared passed in the Senate not withstanding the AV. 41 yes votes.

CGS 07-09-2013 08:07 PM

The House Judiciary Committee recommends the House do concur on HB1453 on a vote of 13/3/0. (this does not yet mean the House has voted on it.)

CGS 07-09-2013 08:11 PM

HB183 is now Public Act 98-0063
