The Illinois Senate has passed a criminal-justice-reform measure characterized by GOP state Senator Sue Rezin as “dangerous.”

The Illinois law-enforcement community generally opposes the bill and its companion House measure, which they say will make it harder to perform their jobs effectively.

Rezin says Senators got SB 3563 for review at 3:00 Wednesday morning and were given only an hour to read the 700-page measure before having to vote on it.

The Republican from Morris represents Starved Rock Country in the upper chamber voted “no.” The legislation passed, 32 to 23.
