SB2808, a bill that prevents Illinois state government officials from obtaining location information of individuals without a warrant, was introduced on Jan. 30 by Sen. Daniel Biss (D-9). It passed through the senate unanimously, and currently resides in the House Judiciary Committee. It will need to pass through the Judiciary Committee by majority before a vote can be taken by the whole house.

PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS – It doesn’t matter where you live in the state, please follow all these steps to support SB2808.

1. Call the Committee Chair, Elaine Nekritz. Strongly, but respectfully urge her to move this important bipartisan bill forward to a vote in her committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on SB2808. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.
