Forget your FOID card? No problem under legislation passed by the Illinois Senate on Wednesday. State Senator Neil Anderson says your are probably less likely to forget your phone than your wallet, and wants card holders to be able to show proof of their FOID card electronically. His bill lets the State Police create an online database people can use to pull up their card if required.
Anderson says the database would be constantly updated to show if a card has been revoked or suspended. The bill now moves to the Illinois House.
