Preposterous Proposals at the Capitol

Thousands of new bills are filed every year by lawmakers in Springfield. Some of them feature popular, widely accepted ideas to make the state better, while others seem a little more out of left field. Every week the Illinois Senate Republican caucus is highlighting a few of the bills that are outlandish, not very well thought out, or just plain bad for the people of Illinois.

This week we take a look at:

Senate Bill 1915, which would ban the use of plastic straws, forks, and knives at the Illinois State Fair; and

Senate Bill 655, which would take away the offense of criminal transmission of HIV.
