Call to Action: Rep. Seth Lewis Encourages Illinoisans to Urge a Veto of HB 3653

As a new member of the General Assembly who was not able to vote on this legislation, I stand with my colleagues who opposed some of the elements of the criminal justice reform bill HB 3653, and the non-transparent process utilized to ensure its passage.

This bill is on its way to the Governor for his signature. I invite all Illinoisans who feel the legislative process was rushed, and believe a better bill could be written to contact Governor Pritzker and urge a veto.
