Per Pass Conceal Carry Illinois, here's some of the bad stuff if you're wondering:

HB183 SFA4:
Section 90. Preemption. The regulation and licensing of the
17 carrying of firearms are exclusive powers and functions of the...
18 State. This Section is a denial and limitation of home rule
19 powers and functions under subsection (h) of Section 6 of
20 Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.

SB2193 HA2:
Section 90. Preemption.
8 The regulation, licensing, possession, carrying, and
9 transportation of firearms and ammunition are exclusive powers
10 and function of the State. Except as explicitly provided in
11 this Act, a home rule unit may not regulate or license any
12 matter related to firearms, including the possession,
13 carrying, and transportation of firearms. This Section is a
14 limitation under subsection (h) of Section 6 of Article VII of
15 the Illinois Constitution on the exercise by home rule units of
16 powers and functions exercised by the State. Any ordinance or
17 regulation enacted on or before the effective date of this Act
18 that is inconsistent with this Act shall be invalidated on the
19 effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General
20 Assembly.

Regardless if you oppose 2193 or not, please oppose 183 if you want carry concealed in Illinois. email and call your senator. Ring his/her door bell if you have to. This is serious. 183 is a very bad bill.
