Illinois Lawmakers Head Back to Work

UNDATED (WIFR) -- The City of Rockford needs approval from Springfield before they can turn the old Ingersol Building into a sports complex. And that may come as soon as this week. Senator Steve Stadelman is expected to introduce the bill sometime after the Senate reconvenes on Wednesday.

Meantime, the Illinois house ended Spring Break Monday and State Representative Jim Sacia tells us he expects the conceal carry debate may take up the entire day in the house chambers.

"this is a huge huge issue and speaker Madigan has played the amendment game with us and we have spent. And we've spent every Tuesday for the last three consecutive weeks while we've been in session on this very issue. So we'll definitely be dealing with it again tomorrow," Sacia said.

Sacia also expects medical marijuana and gay marriage bills to come up for vote possibly by weeks end.
