CHICAGO – State Rep. Kam Buckner, D-Chicago, will have his accountability and transparency in criminal justice measures, the Homicide Victims’ Families’ Rights Act and Homicide Data Transparency Act, heard in front of the House Judiciary – Criminal Committee on Monday, March 11, at 11 a.m. in the Michael A. Bilandic Building, room C-600, located at 160 N. Lasalle Street in Chicago.

“Families of homicide victims deserve justice, and too often, that is denied to them,” Buckner said. “Over the years, our criminal justice system has grown to treat tragic murders, especially those involving Black and Brown Chicagoans, as impossible cases easily dropped at the first sign of difficulty. Victims and families of terrible crimes deserve, at the very least, substantive investigations, and this measure is a major step towards providing that.”

Those wishing to watch can also go to ‘’ and navigate to ‘Virtual Room 1’ in the ‘Audio/Video’ section under ‘House’ at the appropriate time.
