CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — A sharply divided Naperville City Council rejected a resolution calling on Governor Pritzker to veto the criminal justice reform bill recently passed by the General Assembly.
The criminal justice reform bill passed by state lawmakers would end cash bail and eventually require every police officer in the state to be equipped with a body camera. It is not heading to Governor Pritzker’s desk.
The Naperville City Council debated a resolution that calls on the Governor to veto the bill. Those in favor of the resolution said sweeping legislation was passed at the end of the veto session without the public debate the subject deserved.
House Republican leader Jim Durkin spoke at the virtual city council meeting.
