Rep. Grant explains House Bill 1879

Springfield, IL – I filed legislation that would require a valid photo ID to pick up prescriptions of Schedule II Controlled Substances at Illinois pharmacies.

However despite having more than two dozen, bi-partisan cosponsors on the bill, it wasn’t even called for a debate.

If you are still looking for a sign that Springfield is broken, than look no further than this story.

Keeping often abused perscription drugs – like heavy painkillers – from falling into the wrong hands should not become some partisan stalemate.
