Gun bill could further crowd Illinois prisons

Posted:

Springfield – Some lawmakers are concerned the Illinois gun bill could further crowd Illinois prisons.

 

As part of the legislation the gun bill would increase prison time for illegal gun possession. A state analysis says if it becomes law it would cost Illinois one billion dollars over the next decade, and pumps thousands more inmates back into the prison system.
