Illinois: Opposition to third-party driver’s ed bill

House Bill 247, sponsored by Rep. Jonathan Carroll (D-Northbrook), requires that third-party driver’s education instructors who are contracted out receive the same training as regular instructors in the school system. “I just want to clarify a few points, the law already states they have to be licensed — that’s not an issue with this bill,” Bourne said. “I wanted to ask about what is in the bill. Could you explain the genesis with this bill? What’s the specific issue?”
