Rep. Friess Statement on Safe-T Act Ruling

State Representative David Friess released the following statement concerning the Illinois Supreme Court ruling on the Safe-T Act today:

“The citizens of Illinois deserve to live, work, and raise their families in their communities without fear for their safety. Today, the Illinois Supreme Court acted to uphold the “no cash bail” provision of the SAFE-T Act. Our state will be the first to enact a no cash bail system, and at a time when our crime rates are also at the top of the nation.  This decision is extremely disappointing, and a loss for public safety in Illinois.”
