ILLINOIS -- So far, not much is happening with the pension or budget in Springfield at least in public.
But, a concealed carry bill from Rep. Brandon Phelps was filed Wednesday.
The 117 page bill says the state shall issue a five year license to carry a concealed firearm to anyone who meets the qualifications including a training course and pays the $150 dollar fee.
However, any police agency can object to an applicant based upon a reasonable suspicion that the applicant is a danger to himself or herself or others.
In addition, five or more arrests could prevent someone from getting a license, as could two DUI convictions.
The proposed law outlines several places where concealed weapons would not be allowed including public transit.
The state is under a June 9th deadline to come up with a concealed carry law.
