Gov. Quinn expected to use amendatory veto powers on concealed carry bill
CHICAGO — Democratic Governor Pat Quinn plans to take action on Tuesday regarding legislation that would allow guns to be carried in public. People close to Quinn said he will likely insert changes to the bill in an effort to implement strong regulations.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Quinn did not say what he plans to do with the concealed carry measure. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Brandon Phelps, confirmed to Local 6 that the governor's office told him Quinn would rewrite the proposal using his amendatory veto powers.
Rep. Phelps said he will file a motion to override the veto if Quinn does that.
