In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees. As such, we may be delayed in responding to non-essential inquiries and service requests. To stay up to date on the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 response, please click here.
“I commend the members of the Public Health Committee of the Illinois Senate for approving gun-control legislation that restricts high-capacity magazines and assault weapons designed for battlefields and not America’s streets. In order to protect our children, our families and our communities, we need common-sense laws that provide the residents of our cities with the safety they deserve.
I want to thank Chairman William Delgado and all the Committee members for their commitment to this issue as well as Sen. Tony Munoz and Sen. Dan Kotowski for their leadership. I urge the full Senate to follow the committee's lead and quickly pass this important legislation."
