            The sales tax on groceries in Illinois will be suspended for a year starting Friday. The state’s tax relief program was part of the state budget signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker in April. It will also postpone a gas tax increase until January, and cut school supply taxes from 6.25% to 1.25% from Aug. 5 to 14. The measures were part of a $1.8 billion state tax-break deal. GOP leaders derided the measures as a campaign tool for Pritzker and other Democrats in an election year.

            Police have identified three Kankakee men found dead inside an apartment and said they appeared to have been shot. Police say the victims were 25-year-old Kyle Washington, 24-yar-old Deontay Tyler and 27-year-old Malcolm Murray. Police were called to the apartment about 2 p.m. Wednesday by a relative of one of the men who was checking on their welfare. Police say it appeared the men had been shot sometime since the previous evening. No arrests have been made. The Kankakee Police Department requested assistance from the Illinois State Police Crime Scene Services to process the crime scene.

The repeal comes into force Friday. Republicans pushed it through the state Legislature over the vocal opposition of the state police superintendent and several law enforcement groups, who argued eliminating permits would remove a screening tool for quickly identifying those who shouldn’t have guns. The change will allow anyone age 18 or older to carry a handgun in public except those with a felony conviction, who face a restraining order or have a dangerous mental illness. Supporters argue the permit requirement undermined Second Amendment protections.
