Last Friday in the Senate, HB38 Crim Cd - Place of Worship was passed back to the House as amended by Senate Amendment 1.  It now appears on the House Calendar under orders of concurrence.
 
In the House, House Amendment 2 and House Amendment 3 were filed on SB1966 Fix the FOID Act, the first of them to purchase the vote and sponsorship of a Chicago legislator who is "cool with fingerprints" and the cost/difficulty associated with them, a legislator who had once stood by the rights of his constituents.
 
 
The House is scheduled for 4:00 PM today.  The Senate is not in.
 
 
The coming week will be unpredicatable for me.  My involvment may be sporadic, perhaps being away for several days.  I'll continue to post updates as best I am able.
 
 
 
Next Days Scheduled

I wonder if ILGA members get triple-time for holidays.
