Gov. J.B. Pritzker vowed to ‘think big’ as a candidate, but is his agenda too big? Lawmakers will decide this week.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker vowed to ‘think big’ as a candidate, but is his agenda too big? Lawmakers will decide this week.

J.B. Pritzker said it was “time to think big” to deal with the state’s challenges when he introduced himself to Illinois voters as a candidate for governor in a TV ad a little more than two years ago.

Now, five months into office, the Democratic governor finds himself just days away from lawmakers deciding the fate of his “think big” agenda. With the spring legislative session scheduled for a May 31 adjournment, the outcome figures to have a significant impact not only on the state but on the governor’s political future.

Pritzker vowed to change the income tax system and legalize sports betting and recreational marijuana. He proposed a series of tax hikes to balance the budget and unveiled a massive public works construction program with its own accompanying tax increases.

More than 34,000 Illinoisans have lost their right to own a gun. Nearly 80% may still be armed.

More than 34,000 Illinoisans have lost their right to own a gun. Nearly 80% may still be armed.

As many as 30,000 guns may still be in the possession of Illinois residents deemed too dangerous to have them, according to a Tribune investigation.

In an analysis of data released for the first time, the Tribune found the state has repeatedly failed to ensure that people surrender their weapons and gun permits after their Firearm Owner’s Identification cards are revoked, resulting in the breakdown of a system put in place to deter gun violence.

In all, nearly 27,000 Illinois residents over the past four years have not informed authorities what they did with their guns after state police stripped their licenses, according to the analysis. That means law enforcement has no idea whether 78% of revoked cardholders since 2015 still possess guns.
