URBANA, Ill. – State Rep. Carol Ammons, D-Urbana, released the following statement at Monday morning’s Blue Room press conference applauding the end of cash bail in Illinois as bail reform provisions of the SAFE-T Act take effect:

“This day has been a long time coming, and generations of advocates for criminal justice reform are joining us as we move Illinois into a more compassionate future. Ending the use of cash bail is more than just a policy change. It’s a moral declaration that we will not put someone’s financial resources over their lives and future. Bail reform is a testament to the power of collective action. It demonstrates that when communities come together around common sense solutions, we can create meaningful solutions that will impact generations to come.”
