State Senator
Chapin Rose
Representing the 51st District of Illinois
May 28, 2013
Dear Friends
As of 10:00 PM, Tuesday 5/28…
Senator Forby’s/ Rep. Phelps’ Senate Bill 2193 was defeated in the Senate Executive Committee by a vote of 6-8. Senator James Clayborne sided with the 5 Republican members of the committee.
Later this afternoon, the committee adopted an amendment to Senator Raoul’s HB 183, with a vote of 8-4-1. The Republican members of the Executive Committee voted “no” or “present” on the Raoul version of concealed-carry legislation.
As a reminder the Forby/Phelps bill included preemption and was a “shall” issue concealed-carry version. Raoul’s bill is written for “may” issue. We are clearly at a stalemate at this point, I will likely send out another update tomorrow. I will remain strong and hope to vote on a "shall" issue bill that allows all Illinoisans the same concealed-carry rights.
