As patience wears thin in the legislature and face coverings get put back on when some House and Senate members realize they are on camera, the legislature continues to plod along toward the end of Spring Session.  That may, perhaps, happen sooner rather than later.

House Amendment 3 has been filed on SB1805.
 
 
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the FY2021 Budget Implementation Act. Provides that the purpose of the Act is to make the changes in State programs that are necessary to implement the Governor's FY2021 budget recommendations. Effective immediately.
 
 
If I read this correctly, and $5M transfer into the Firearm Dealer License Certification Act has been stricken (originally removed in House Amendment 2), and a $4,981 transfer out of the State Police Firearm Services Fund has been added.

Did you honestly think that they weren't going to after 5 million dollars that would make the FOID and CCW process more efficient?

They are going to try and gut us under JB. "Let them sue over wait times, it will take years."

5K instead of 5 million to the ISP Firearm Services Fund, Whoopee!

Will admit to not reading the entire HA and only a quick scan, but is the ~$5K not coming out of the FSB and going to the State fund for auditing purposes where any excess of the transfer amount left in audit fund gets returned to the FSB?

I believe that's the way it works, though I don't know enough detail to say for sure it would be returned.

So, this isnt really a bad thing? $5k in the overall scheme of things for auditing seems a drop in the bucket. And the FSB fund gets to keep its $5M instead of giving it to Dealer certification...although I suppose they in turn might use that as an excuse for needing more or increased fees.

For me, these budget bills are difficult to make sense of.

If $5k saves the state we're not going to argue about it.

In my inbox from yesterday:
 

There seems to be a misunderstanding as to the affect of the newly filed bill SB3993 on gun rights within the 2A community. SB3993 is sponsored by Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady, a huge 2nd Amendment supporter. SB3993 is the business communitiessic, including the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, response to Governor Pritzker's continued use of Executive Orders to restrict commerce. This bill would set up certain protocols for businesses to remain open within the eleven Illinois Department of Public Health emergency regions as opposed to the arbitrary four regions within Gov. Pritzker's Restore IL plan. Furthermore, this new legislation would not allow any Governor to continually extend Emergency Declarations without approval from the General Assembly.

The consternation within the 2A community of this new bill is that it amends the existing Illinois Emergency Management Act. Existing law says one of the powers of an Emergency Declaration is the ability to "suspend or limit the sale of firearms." SB3993 does nothing to limit firearm sales. We at ISRA certainly have an issue with existing law that allows for an entity declaring an emergency to have the ability to limit firearm sales. We faced this in Champaign and other municipalities. Governor Pritzker chose not to limit firearm sales by declaring gun shops essential businesses.

In the end, if you do not like the unilateral power conveyed to a single person in emergency declarations that can stop people from working, you should support SB3993.


The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

SB3993 just isn't an issue.  It's a good bill for reasons unrelated to the 2A.

 

I think there may have also been some expressions of displeasure with the sponsor yesterday, again for reasons not directly related to us.
