The Illinois House has rejected a measure that would require $1 million in liability insurance for people carrying concealed weapons.
It was among seven amendments on gun issues that legislators debated Tuesday as they consider a court-ordered law allowing conceal-and-carry.
Some estimate that an insurance policy would cost $500 to $2,000, if insurance companies would even write the policies.
Republicans complained that's too expensive for citizens exercising a constitutional right.
A federal court struck down Illinois' concealed-carry ban and gave lawmakers until June 8 to adopt a law.
