Lawmakers told to prepare for possible concealed carry veto
A local state senator said there's a chance the governor could veto a court-mandated concealed carry bill that was passed by lawmakers last week.
The state this week was given a 30 day extension on its June 9th deadline to enact concealed carry. That gives Governor Pat Quinn more time to review the plan, although an appellate court said the state will not be given another extension.
But Democratic Senator Mike Frerichs of Champaign said lawmakers have been told to prepare for a possible veto of the concealed carry bill, which received bipartisan support.
Frerichs said a decision like that wouldn't hold up, though, because there are more than enough votes to override the veto.
Frerichs made the comments Thursday on the NewsTalk 1400 WDWS Morning Show.
