A.G. praises bill to crack down on repeat meth offenders

SPRINGFIELD, IL (KFVS) - Attorney General Lisa Madigan praised House members for their unanimous passage Wednesday of House bill 1908, which prohibits offenders who re-enter society after a meth-related conviction from purchasing or possessing any product containing pseudoephedrine.

"This legislation is another tool to help law enforcement protect our communities from the devastating effects of meth," said Madigan. "Our goal is to make it more difficult for offenders to backslide into using or manufacturing meth."

Approved in the House by a vote of 115-0, the measure now moves to the Senate.
