The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act, known as the SAFE-T Act, passed with the backing of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus in the early hours of Jan. 13, 2021.
“After multiple versions on multiple different bills with countless changes over 3 days, Dems filed their final Defund Police Bill of 764 pages at 3:04 a.m. to HB 3653 ... debate started at 4:02 a.m. I am telling you right now, not a single person in this Senate Chamber knows what the final provisions of this bill are. Citizens of Illinois - ask those who vote Yes - how could they possibly digest 764 pages in less than an hour? I'm voting NO!”
-Senator Chapin Rose, via Facebook

REPEAL SAFE-T ACT
Numerous county and municipal boards throughout Illinois are passing bi-partisan resolutions to REPEAL the SAFE-T Act. Why? Communities can't afford continued crime increases. Illinois families and citizens deserve better. A sample resolution is posted below from Naperville, Illinois. Other communities may adopt the same type of resolution. Contact Safe Suburbs if you'd like them to assist with drafting a resolution.
