Some believe there will be post-election changes to the SAFE-T Act

Some expect to see follow-up legislation to the SAFE-T Act after the election and before the controversial measure takes effect in the new year. During a Springfield City Council meeting this week, city officials heard from lobbyist Art Turner about expectations that lawmakers will return this fall session as early as the week after the Nov. 8 election to address various issues.

The measure has come under increased scrutiny as members of law enforcement raise concerns over no cash bail. At least two state attorneys have sued to stymie the law’s implementation.
