Governor Pritzker says he’s confident the no-cash bail portion of the Safe-T Act will be upheld by the Illinois Supreme Court. It was recently ruled unconstitutional by a Kankakee County judge and now the state has appealed to the state high court. The Illinois Supreme Court has issued a stay on the no-cash bail law while the matter is reviewed. Governor Pritzker expects a ruling within the next few months.
