IL House to Discuss Changes to Conceal Carry Bill
By AP
SPRINGFIELD, IL - Lawmakers are being called back to Springfield to consider Gov. Pat Quinn's proposed changes on a concealed carry bill.

House Speaker Michael Madigan's spokesman Steve Brown said Tuesday the House will convene in regular session July 9. Senate President John Cullerton's spokeswoman says senators will join them.

That's the day Illinois must meet a court-mandated deadline to legalize concealed carry.

Quinn used his amendatory veto power Tuesday to make significant changes. But the bill's sponsor intends to call for an override.

Brown says House members should be prepared to be in Springfield for more than one day, maybe two.

Quinn had set July 9 as a deadline for lawmakers to send him a pension bill. The committee charged with that task meets Wednesday in Chicago and next week in Springfield.
