Yesterday, the three House Amendments on SB1966 Fix the FOID Act were held in the Senate Judiciary Committee, perhaps to resurface today. Good work to all who filed witness slips in opposition. We will stay vigilant through the rest of this final scheduled day of the 2019 Spring Session, for possible new committee action on this bill.

The House is scheduled for 9:00 AM today and the Senate for 11:00 AM.

I should be here for part of the morning floor debate but have an appointment that will partially conflict with the afternoon. Please jump in where you can.

Assuming Spring Session isn't extended for some reason, we could see the bill resurface in the Fall Veto Session or similar language in another bill next Spring.  But, if they don't have the votes now they might have to rethink a lot of it (don't necessarily take that as a prediction about the votes).

Since the bill as passed by the house says "effective immediately", it would need a 3/5 majority vote to be passed after 5/31 per the IL constitution. Thus, to pass it in veto session, they'd either have to revise the effective date to Jan 1st or muster 71 votes in the house rather than the 62 they got yesterday.

Is there any doubt that there are enough votes in the Senate to pass this today?

If it gets to the floor, I believe it would pass. But there might possibly be a smidge of doubt that it will get scheduled for committee at this point. But way too early to hope. They have 17 hours left to do their dirty work.

Aren't they doing the budget today too? That cuts into that 17 hours by a very significant amount of time. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

There are currently no House Committees scheduled for today, and nothing related to us in the Senate so far.

It doesn't seem there are hard rules as to calling on anything anywhere as far as committees or procedure.

It is all just guidelines,  they can spring anything on us at any time.

Even if there were rules, it's Illinois, they would just change the rules on the fly.
