In a day straight from the annals of Byzantium, Senators Kotowski and Muñoz managed to amend two otherwise useful bills into further attempts to ignore their increasingly regular losses in court. They now appear on our watch list as HB815 and HB1263, both at third reading, and both acting as reminders that the idea of open government is a concept that flies too high for the minds of some legislators.

All members and guests are encouraged to visit the Illinois General Assembly Dashboard in order to file witness slips in OPPOSITION to Senate Amendment 3 to HB815 and Senate Amendment 7 to HB1263. File early as the committee is scheduled for 11 AM.

Another bill, HB1237, has become an amendment to the FOID Act and is listed as neutral pending additional review.



The Senate is scheduled for 10:00 AM today. The House is not in.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C.S. Lewis

If HB815 and HB1263.go to the floor, it will be interesting to see who supports and who is in opposition.
I imagine we'll see the usual Chicago "gang" in action.

I copied it but here it is:
Click this link to go to the new dashboard.

Click the box to the right of Public Health.

Click "Creae a Witness Slip" for each of the bills individually.

Fiil in name, address, etc. Use "na" for Firm, Business or Agency, Title, and Person Group or Firm represented

Your position will be "opponent" - click the radio button next to that.

Testimony is "Record of Apperance Only"

Be patient with the capcha characters

They must have removed the options to file witness slips from the dashboard because I don't see either of those bills like I did yesterday.

there is a button to view hearing details to the right of "1/03/2013 - 11:00 AM Executive
Capitol - 212 - Springfield, IL"

Then there should be a button that shows next to each of the bills to create slip

Got it now. I see there another bill by Munoz HB3450.
I'm tempted to file a witness slip in opposition to that as well, but I'm not sure what it's about.

Yea I seen that too. Its for craft distilleries. But from what I can read in the text, I'm not positive but, I think it increases what they are allowed to make under a certain class 9 license. So I aint gunna touch that one with out knowing for sure.


Edit: Just found more text way lower giving specific places a license can be given too.... still unsure tho....

Does anyone know what room they will be discussing 815 and 1263 in? Would like to set up my computer to record it so I can listen to it later.
