A central Illinois lawmaker is weighing in on the lame-duck session that wrapped up recently in Springfield.
The assault weapons ban highlighted a session of lots of laws - some controversial - passed. Sen. Sally Turner says this legislation is turning law-abiding citizens into criminals and supports the Sheriffs in her district that say they are not going to enforce these laws.
Sen. Turner is disappointed in legislation that will supersede local control over wind and solar energy. She points out the issues of the weather radar station in Logan County just outside of Lincoln.
Sen. Turner indicates the legislation came forward because some parts of the State have been resistant to wind and solar energy allowing no opportunity for development. She did not like the over-the-top approach the State took on that issue.
