SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – More than two dozen amendments involving the issue of carrying concealed weapons in Illinois could be debated on the House floor beginning today.

House Speaker Michael Madigan has set up a process to allow legislators to submit amendments covering different topics involving the issue. Lawmakers filed 27 amendments- including whether a law would require the state to issue concealed-carry permits to qualified applicants.

A federal court dismissed the Illinois ban in December and ordered a law be approved by early June.
