LAWMAKER'S LOOK AT EDITING ILLINOIS' LAW BOOK
Lawmakers in Springfield want to cut about one third of Illinois' 300,000 page criminal code. An expert panel is recommending changes that would streamline the decades old law book, which was last edited in 1961. Since then, lawmakers have added thousands of new laws. As there's not a lot of opposition to these cuts, there could be next year when a panel looks to edit Illinois' sentencing guidelines.
