Rep. Spain reaction to SAFE-T Act Ruling

Today’s ruling to uphold the SAFE-T Act is a great disappointment for reducing crime and supporting public safety in Illinois. When this legislation was proposed in 2021, I watched Democrats use inappropriate maneuvers and lameduck tactics to pass a flawed bill. Now Democrats have flexed their judicial gerrymandering to deliver a court ruling in their favor. Madigan’s Court delivered one final favor to their political godfather. This is a terrible outcome for the people of Illinois. We must redouble efforts to empower citizens to rid our government of corruption and unethical deal-making.
