State Senator Dave KoehlerSPRINGFIELD – Disabled veterans, returning service members and those who are terminally ill would not need to get a trapping license under a plan by State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) that advanced out of the Senate Agriculture Committee Thursday.

Koehler is the sponsor of Senate Bill 1533, which provides a trapping license exemption for those groups.

“Our servicemen and women sacrifice so much every day on our behalf, and this legislation is a small step toward showing them that we have not forgotten that sacrifice,” Koehler said. “I am proud to work on this and similar measures that are aimed at providing our veterans with the resources they need and deserve.”

The legislation is now scheduled to be considered before the whole Senate.
