SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, issued the following statement Wednesday following passage of public safety proposals in the House:

“For the past two months, I’ve had the opportunity to lead a diverse public safety working group focused on engaging safety stakeholders and introducing real legislative solutions this session. Today we came together to pass a responsible series of proposals that will make our communities safer, support law enforcement, and help crime victims receive the care they deserve. More work remains, but today’s action was an encouraging step in the right direction to target the root causes of violence.”
