SAFE-T Act Clean-Up Still Falls Short

Statement from Rep. Andrew Chesney (R – Freeport) on the Democrats proposed “fixes” to the flawed SAFE-T Act.

“Even as crime rates continue to rise, Democrats will be putting criminals back on the streets if their Safe-T Act is not repealed. The Democrats’ proposed “fixes” to the legislation still allow for many offenders to be released back onto our streets for numerous violent crimes. And, to add insult to injury, it lessens penalties on repeat offenders. The Democrats continue to put criminals above victims. To protect our communities, the Safe-T Act must be repealed.”
