We were in session late last night, adjourning around 1 am. While most Illinoisans were sleeping, Democrats passed several controversial bills:
- SB 1534 – Expands abortion in Illinois and further deteriorates parents’ rights, endangering the health of women and girls across the state.
- SB 2226 – An overreaching, unconstitutional gun ban that prevents law-abiding citizens from accessing dozens of commonly used firearms and requires registration by those who already legally obtained a “banned” gun.
While Democrats abuse their supermajority status for political gain, it is the people of Illinois pay the price. We have to work together to produce good public policy if we want to make Illinois the best place for families to live, learn, work, and grow.
