Silly bills distract some Illinois lawmakers
Our state lawmakers can’t come up with pension reform, but they can find the time to make it a crime to buy or sell lion meat.
They have no concrete plan to pay down a $10 billion pile of unpaid bills, but they can file bills to crack down on anonymous commenters on websites.
Recent piecemeal attempts to cobble together pension reform aside, state lawmakers have a history of dealing with anything but pension reform. A last-minute effort to enact pension reform collapsed in the final hours of the 2012 spring session, but lawmakers took the time in May to pass a bill allowing trained miniature horses to be used as service animals for the disabled.
