This is the thread where we list the bills we're following in the 2019 Spring Session. The lists will eventually include bills filed, approved in committee, potentially passed from one house to the other or passed into law.
When bills of interest are scheduled to potentially be heard in a committee we'll send an email alert with links, and duplicate that alert in a separate thread on the forum and on our Facebook page.
The bills I listed today were filed today, so they are early in the process - too early for witness slips. We'll see what happens but it looks like we'll be doing another alert this weekend so watch for that.

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—...
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4 NIV)
On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law. The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.
