A bill sitting on the governor’s desk would ban Illinois drivers from using hand-held cell phones while driving. The measure would still allow motorists to use hands free devices. But some want a law restricting that option as well.
Illinois lawmakers have until June 9th to come up with a plan to allow the concealed carry of handguns in the state, by order of a federal court. There have been a number of public hearings on the issue, but so far, legislative maneuvers have kept any plan from advancing.
