Not much progress this session on a bill banning lion meat in Illinois. House lawmakers spent quite a bit of time debating the measure, which bans the possession, breeding or sale of lions for their meat. The proposal didn’t sit well with many members, including Representative David Reis of Olney.
Sensing defeat, the bill sponsor Representative Luis Arroyo of Chicago decided not to call it for a vote. That prompted plenty of jabs from his colleagues, like Representative Ken Durkin.
Arroyo could still bring up the legislation for an actual vote.
