VIDEO: Breen Questions Jail Detainee Voting Bill as Democrats Ignore Republican Victims Rights Bills

This week the House considered legislation that would require election authorities to work with county jails across Illinois to allow voting for pre-trial individuals. While debating the bill, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) questioned the focus on allowing people in jail to vote, and pointed to Democrat action over the last few weeks to block several Republican victims' rights bills that sought to enhance criminal penalties.

The video above includes Rep. Breen's full floor comments on HB 4469.
