ILACP Priority Bills - 2020

Updated March 5, 2020

Top Legislative Issues

  1. Bail reform. OPPOSE. There is not a bill number yet, but we will oppose efforts to end cash bail. Other criminal justice “reforms” may be grouped into a package, and we will keep a wary eye on them.

  2. SB 3739. SUPPORT. Funding for MTUs/ILETSB: $5 million in emergency funding so that training can continue.

  3. SB 3503, HB 4796 and HB 1616. OPPOSE. These would require three phone calls within an hour to somebody in custody.

  4. HB 4797. OPPOSE. This would increase the base for retail theft to $2,000.

  5. HB 5472. OPPOSE. Allows local licenses for cannabis clubs and temporary events.
