Posted 21 March 2012 - 12:19 AM

When we last met on 3/9/2012, the following bills moved from 2nd to 3rd reading in the House:

HB4063 - FOID Firearms (BB Guns)
HB4717 - FOID Ammunition
HB4901 - Criminal Law Tech
HB5100 - Wildlife Cd Case Definition
HB5151 - Premises Liability Firearm Range
HB5340 - FOID Preempt Local Gov
HB5565 - Firearms Municipal Regulation
HB5649 - Stun Guns Taser Carry
HB5913 Crim Cd Firearm Transport.

In keeping with prior efforts to control the growing list of bills, notes are again pared down to the essentials and neutral bill are being removed. In this vein, HB4498 - Crim Cd Firearm Felon Minor is off the watch list beginning today. Though not a good bill by any means, it proposes to make an already illegal activity punishable by more severe penalties - a situation which is unlikely to affect our membership..

HB3845 - Unwanted Firearms and HB4456 - FOID Prvate Sales make there first appearance on the House calendar today at 2nd reading. We are opposed to both.

HB5649 - Stun Guns Taser Carry remains on the watch list with it's status changed to support

Of greatest interest, perhaps, is the addition of a balanced budget note to HB5831 - FOID Handgun Registration. Not only does the Illinois State Police feel they are "unable to comply with the legislation as written.', but now the Office of Management and Budget believes, "it is unclear if sufficient revenue will be generated to support the mandated operations."



Both House and Senate are scheduled for 12:00 Noon today..

Status: Second Reading

Creates the Family and Personal Protection Act.

HB5831 - FOID Handgun Registration

Oppose

House Sponsor: Davis, Mulligan, Currie, Acevedo, Cassidy, Jones

Status: Second Reading

Synopsis As Introduced

Amends the Freedom of Information Act. Provides that names and information of people who have applied for or received certificates of handgun registration are exempt from public inspections and copying. Amends the State Finance Act. Creates the National Instant Criminal Background Check System Improvement Fund and the Illinois LEADS Information and Technology Improvement Fund. Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Act. Provides that the Act may now be cited to as the "Firearm Owners Identification Card and Certificate of Handgun Registration Act". Defines "certificate of handgun registration" and "handgun". Prohibits any person in the State from carrying or possessing a handgun without a certificate of handgun registration. Sets forth requirements concerning exemptions, applications for registration, registration fees, the distribution of moneys received from certain fees, and the denial of an application. Creates penalties for the possession of a handgun without a current certificate of registration, knowingly providing false or misleading information or evidence in connection with an application, and the failure to report to local law enforcement that a registered handgun is lost, stolen, missing, or destroyed. Sets forth procedures for the return of a certificate of registration for a handgun that is lost, stolen, or otherwise disposed of. Amends various Acts to make conforming changes.


Fiscal Note (Illinois State Police)

HB 5831 provides a monetary stimulus to register firearms within 90 days of the effective date of the bill which will create a huge influx of applications. The legislation requires the Illinois State Police to respond within 30 days after the initial application is received or allow for an appeal process if non-compliant. The Firearms Services Bureau (FSB) currently has a backlog in FOID application processing and the Relief Process for denied FOID applicants. This process will further contribute to the already dated and taxed system. Given the incentive to register firearms within the initial 90 day window, the tremendous impact of applications would be overwhelming to FSB given the current staffing levels are at a historic low while managing record levels of FOID card applications. In addition, the number of gun owners or the number of guns purchased in Illinois is unknown. Due to these factors, the Illinois State Police is unable to provide the fiscal impact. However, further research will determine IT infrastructure needs, staffing, equipment and ancillary office supplies to comply with the legislation as written. Without significant upfront resources, the department would be unable to comply with the legislation as written.

Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)

HB 5831 as introduced has an unknown fiscal impact to the Illinois State Police. To fulfill the mandates included in this legislation, the Illinois State Police would need to spend approximately $3 million in developing and implementing a sufficient information technology system; have sufficient time to develop and implement the aforementioned system; and hire additional staff to carry out the duties mandated. While a revenue stream is identified for the FOID Fund and the National Criminal Instant Background Check System Improvement Fund and the Illinois LEADS Information and Technology Improvement Fund are established, it is unclear if sufficient revenue will be generated to support the mandated operations.






HB5913 - Crim Cd Firearm Transport

Support

House Sponsor: Rose

Status: Third Reading

Synopsis As Introduced

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that a unit of local government, including a home rule unit, may not regulate the transportation of firearms and may not regulate the transportation of ammunition, components, accessories, or accoutrements for firearms. Provides that the provisions of any ordinance or resolution adopted by any unit of local government that imposes restrictions or limitations on the transportation of firearms and ammunition, components, accessories, and accoutrements of firearms in a manner other than those that are imposed by this amendatory Act are invalid and all those existing ordinances and resolutions are void. Provides that any unit of local government which is found to have violated this provision is liable for all costs, attorney's fees, actual, and treble damages. Provides that this provision is a limitation of home rule powers under subsection (h) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution. Effective immediately.

Been talking about a scholarships bill for about an hour in case anyone is wondering. Gripping stuff.

I wonder if that has anything to do with the state running out of financial aid?

"Out of the Record" simply means the sponsor is not ready to move the bill forward today.

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.

There was a lot of committee work early on, and the election of course. Now they're back and facing a 3/30/2012 deadline to get bills at least to third reading.


ETA Looking at the calendar a little closer, 3/30/2012 is also the final action deadline for House substasive bills.

Representative Currie is speaking against the idea of preemption, equating "gun violence" with the legal, peaceful ownership of firearms.

Representative Williams agrees with Representative Currie. Neither has been challenged to show the benefit of the anti-gun laws they seek to protect.

No surprise as it's not ready yet - although when I heard the number in the background it did grab my attention pretty quickly!
