Police reform bill passes Illinois House, heads to Pritzker’s desk

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WREX) — A controversial police reform bill has passed the Illinois House.

The House voted to pass the bill during Wednesday’s lame duck session with a 60-50 vote.

The bill passed through Illinois Senate early Wednesday morning.

The bill would eliminate cash bail, require body cameras for all departments and prevent police misconduct records from being destroyed.

Local law enforcement and Republican leaders in Rockford say they are opposed to the bill.
