Illinois SB1351 and SB1753 would put strict warrant restrictions on ALPRs and help block a national license plate tracking program. The bills were referred to the Senate Assignments Committee where they must pass through successfully before they can receive full votes in the state senate. Take the following steps to support these important bills.
1. Call the Senate Assignments Committee Chair, James Clayborne. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move these important bills forward to a vote in his 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 these bills forward and vote YES on SB1351 and SB1753.
3. Call Back – any NO or UNDECIDED – in 3-4 days. Make sure to follow-up. If they say YES, be sure to thank them and, if possible, announce their committed YES vote to email and social media contacts. If they say no, politely ask them why. Get the information from them and contact us.
4. Spread the Word. Share this information widely by facebook, twitter, email and other social networks.
