ONE ISSUE THAT DIDN'T GET RESOLVED DURING THE SPRING LEGISLATIVE SESSION...FIXING THE STATE'S FOID CARD BACKLOG. 

 

DUELING BILLS WERE DEBATED IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE, WITH ONE BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO. ONE REQUIRES SUBMITTING FINGERPRINTS TO GET A FOID CARD, THE OTHER ONLY REQUIRES FINGERPRINTS IF YOU WANT TO GET A CARD THAT NEVER EXPIRES. SENATOR DAVE KOEHLER OF PEORIA SPONSORED THAT VERSION.

 

 

HE USE OF FINGERPRINTS AT ALL IS A MAJOR STICKING POINT... WITH SOME, LIKE SENATOR DARREN BAILEY OF LOUISVILLE, ARGUING AGAINST THE CARD ENTIRELY.

 

 

NEITHER OF THE BILLS CLEARED BOTH CHAMBERS. LAWMAKERS SAY THEY WILL CONTINUE WORKING ON THE LEGISLATION.
